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.

    I usually have such short attention span that after reading 50 pages of any books, unless it’s a science book, I get bored and distracted. Book books, Persepolis 1 & 2, were so interesting and well charicatured. It represents the true life in iran without any exaggeration. Well done Marjane.
