Anyone who has read Persepolis may have wondered if Marjane Satrapi was a one-shot wonder. This latest book of hers should put that to rest. I found this to be one of the most moving and beautifully crafted graphic novels in existence. Truly, truly romantic, from a truly remarkable author.
Comes out in stores October 7th in English, from Pantheon of course.
Oh, and more on Marjane Satrapi! At the Sony Classics website there are glimpses of the animated Perspolis movie which look extraordinary.
