The Complete Persepolis--Marjane Satrapi

Another great read. I've never read a graphic novel before, but the author's account of her childhood in Iran during the Islamic Revolution goes down smoothly in comic book form. It was tragic and heart-wrencing; enlightening and inspiring. Sometimes its good to be reminded of all we Americans are gifted with and take for granted.

Have you seen the movie? I highly recommend it! It's animated with english subtitles.
