Product Details


“Tantalizing … Bold, bewitchingly humorous and politically astute … A cheeky and knowing peek at the loves, sexual histories and marital secrets of … these beautiful and seductive women.”

“Endearing … A wicked read.”
Los Angeles Times

“Humorous and bawdy … An amusing portrayal of independent women taking life in stride.”
The Village Voice

Embroideries is as funny, opinionated, controversial and surprising as any good comic or conversation should be.”

“Subversive … Satrapi’s book is a mocking rebuke to the cult of chastity, and a statement about the way human passions find their way around the most determined repression.”

“By turns bawdy and heartbreaking … Of all Satrapi’s books, Embroideries most effectively tears down the divide between Iranian and American culture, showing how women everywhere are similar.”
The Capital Times (Madison)
