Marjane Satrapi: Persepolis

I friend of mine gave me the first Persepolis book by Marjane Satrapi as Christmas present. Since I'm not really a fan of the idea that puts comics on the same line as literature, I was rather reluctant to read it, but I did and it was a revelation.

Persepolis is an autobiographical comic about the life in exhile of the young Iranian girl in Europe. It draws a good picture of the absurd regime of Khomeini, without gloryfying the cruel reign of the shah. The most interesting aspect, however, is how Strapi, as an outsider, shows a funny mirror to our Western customs.
