Persepolis

In what i'm reading on January 4, 2009 at 12:10 pm

I’ve just read Persepolis by Marjin Satrapi. It’s the first graphic novel I’ve ever read. This weekend’s newspapers inform me that the term ‘graphic novel’ is a bit too serious, but likewise, calling it a ‘comic’ doesn’t do it justice. In fact I think it’s an incredibly versatile way of telling a story.

I was gripped throughout. In the past I’ve worked on a gallery display about ancient Iran and I’m currently working on an exhibition about an Iranian Shah from the 1600s, so the content was all quite timely for me. I bought a copy for my aunt for Christmas. I wonder what she thought of it?
