PERSEPOLIS: The Story of a Childhood
Satrapi's autobiographical comic book traces the aftermath of the Islamic Revolution from the perspective of a young girl in a middle-class, left-leaning family. Young Satrapi manages moments of both joy and ferocity as she navigates an increasingly changed world. Incorporating feminist themes, reflections on restrictive cultural norms, and darkly humorous observations of growing up under threat of falling bombs, PERSEPOLIS earned critical acclaim and was adapted into an animated film. By the same token, it is one of the ALA's Top Ten Most Challenged Books. One of the most influential graphic novels of the 21st century.
