Persepolis [a Gab bag for book discussion groups]

  • "Originally published to wide critical acclaim in France, where it elicited comparisons to Art Spiegelman's Maus, Persepolis is Marjane Satrapi's wise, funny, and heartbreaking memoir of growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution. In powerful black-and-white comic strip images, Satrapi tells the story of her life in Tehran from ages six to fourteen, years that saw the overthrow of the Shah's regime, the triumph of the Islamic Revolution, and the devastating effects of war with Iraq. The intelligent and outspoken only child of committed Marxists and the great-granddaughter of one of Iran's last emperors, Marjane bears witness to a childhood uniquely entwined with the history of her country."

Marjane's child's-eye-view of dethroned emperors, state-sanctioned whippings, and heroes of the revolution allows us to learn as she does the history of this fascinating country and of her own extraordinary family. Intensely personal, profoundly political, and wholly original, Persepolis is at once a story of growing up and a stunning reminder of the human cost of war and political repression. It shows how we carry on, through laughter and tears, in the face of absurdity."
  • "Jugendjahre einer Iranerin: Marjane kommt mit vierzehn Jahren alleine aus dem islamistischen Regime des Irans in das westliche Europa - genauer gesagt nach Wien. Dort versucht sie sich so gut wie möglich zu integrieren, was ihr verständlicherweise nicht so einfach fällt. Da gibt es z.B. Feste , auf denen gar nicht getanzt, sondern nur geraucht und herumgelegen wird - auch die öffentliche Intimität trägt zur Verwirrung bei. Sie findet dennoch Anschluss in eine Gruppe und erlebt schliesslich vier wilde Jahre bis zum eigentlichen Absturz wegen Liebeskummer. So kehrt sie gescheitert in den Iran zurück. Um ihren Freund kennenzulernen, muss sie diesen (mit 21 Jahren) heiraten, was ihre liberal-linken Eltern geradezu schockiert - haben sie doch alles dafür gegeben, dass ihre Tochter eine freie Frau wird. Mit 24 Jahren ist dann ihre Geschichte im Iran definitiv zu Ende, sie lebt jetzt in Paris. Um die westlichen Vorurteile gegen den Iran abzubauen, hat sie sich mit grafisch unkomplizierten, aber sehr ansprechenden Bildern im Comicmedium ein Werk geschaffen, das nicht nur biografisch, sondern auch historisch-politisch sehr interessant ist. Zur idealen Ergänzung sei ihr erster Band über die Kindheit im Iran ebenfalls sehr empfohlen! Ab 12 Jahren, ausgezeichnet, Urs Geissbühler."

  • "In 1970s Iran, Marjane 'Marji' Statrapi watches events through her young eyes and her idealistic family. Their long dream is realized when the hated Shah is defeated in the Iranian Revolution of 1979. Now ruled by Islamic fundamentalists, Marji grows up to witnesses first hand how the new Iran has become a repressive tyranny on its own. With Marji dangerously refusing to remain silent at this injustice, her parents send her abroad to Vienna to study. This change proves an equally difficult trial for Marji and finds herself in a different culture loaded with abrasive characters and profound disappointments that deeply trouble her. Even when she returns home, Marji finds that both she and her homeland have changed too much and the young woman and her loving family must decide where she truly belongs."
