What to Read After... The Snowman 09/12/19
Persepolis is Satrapi's history of Iran and her life in Iran and France as she tries to retain her Iranian culture but also grow up and become independent.
Fiercely funny, methodical (it's all very consistent panelling all the way through) and political, this is an absorbing narrative in black and white. It's full of simple family dilemmas and sagas, yet never takes its critical eye off the last 200 years of Iranian society and politics.
