Me pueden hacer saber si lo tienen, por favor. She experienced an Iraqi air raid and Scud missile attacks on Tehran.


Knowing all this, the synopsis for Embroideries intrigued me greatly in the basis that it afforded me an opportunity to see the female Iranian culture behind closed doors. I sometimes feel guilty about being an American woman. Satrapi grew up in Tehran in a family which was involved with communist and socialist movements in Iran prior to the Iranian Revolution.

I agree with Lesley, this book was an extremely quick read and definitely felt like it was just to have another book. However I still satraapi it quite funny and real. If you multiply these kids by generation you have, I don’t know,princes [and princesses]. If something so bald and forthright does not snap you to attention, not much can.

Not sure if I’d be comfortable recommending it though. She grew up in Tehran, where she studied at the French school, before leaving for Vienna and then Strasbourg to study illustration. Read Persepolis, skip this one.

She tells the stories of about 7 women I was disappointed by Marjane Satrapi’s follow up to the fantastic two volume “Persepolis”. Finished in one shot, that’s how amazing and laughable this book was.
