Shaped by war

The Complete Persepolis
by Marjane Satrapi

A coming-of-age memoir, Persepolis details Satrapi’s childhood in Tehran during the Islamic Revolution, her teenage years alone in Vienna, and her return to Tehran as a young adult. Satrapi’s black-and-white illustrations suit her stark story, capturing all her fear, anger, and confusion.

A story for anyone wanting to understand war, revolution, and the effects on those who experience it.
