Persepolis is a memoir from the author written in graphic novel form. It tells the story of a young Iranian girl’s life during the reign of the Shah and the Islamic revolution that followed in 1979.
This weekend, I am hosting a baby shower for one of my best friends who is having her first baby girl. While planning, she asked that her guests bring her a book that she may read to her daughter, rather than a card. This tradition has become very popular here in the United States; what a wonderful way to introduce stories to your baby.
I am going to be honest (as always) and say that I chose this as my first read of 2018 because I had such high hopes. Unfortunately, I wasn’t completely in love with these stories. I say stories because this is a collection of short stories about women that has a feminist/dystopian undertone.
