Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood and The Story of a Return

Translated into a handful of languages, this autobiographical tale of a girl growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution and the Iraq-Iran War has made just about every list of best graphic novels including Time magazine’s. As the likelihood of US military action against Iran appears to grow with each passing day, this “amiable, sardonic and very candid memoir couldn’t do a better job”1 of humanising a nation that is rarely seen except through the tinted lenses of the mainstream media.

Snapped up by a local writer for the unconscionable price of $4
