Iran.. in graphic comic book style, from the viewpoint of a young girl growing up in Tehran. Brilliant.
I have recently finished a book called, "Persepolis" by Satrapi Marjane, a memoir. In this book the protagonist is Marji, she is a young girl who lives with her parents. Her parents would go into the streets at night and protest with others that have the same race as her because they didn’t like how they were treated and etc. The setting which it mostly took place is in Iran. Marji has to whear this veil in school, so they started a cultural revolution in Iran so that is when her parents started to protest in the streets.
Memoir told in comic-strip format of Marjane's girlhood in Iran during and after the Islamic Revolution.
