There were also examples of some women who weren’t quite as open minded — the balance was brilliantly done. Dove ero io quando dovevo conoscere la Satrapi? Sure, it grants an interesting insight into Iranian culture with a much needed focus on Iranian women but, all in all, the comic is too short and superficial to have really satisfied me. Or the girl who married an old man when she was thirteen years old? The Story of a Return without identifying with the large-eyed, blank-faced heroine. Though this is a story that never stands still, there are many erudite asides about God, fundamentalism, communism, anarchism, imperialism, and the 2, years of tyranny and submission that is Iran’s history.

I’ll still read her other book about Iran, “Chicken with Plums” and hope that she’s returned to her evocative story-telling. Another woman describes trying to use white magic to make her lover propose; what starts as a sweet little story has an improbably gross punchline.


She goes on to explain. This may partly be down to the fact that though Satrapi has herself written several books for brodegies Persepolis is technically and therefore thrillingly for adults.

If you’ve read her graphic memoir you would already know that Marjane Satrapi was born in in Rasht, Iran.

Review: Embroideries by Marjane Satrapi | Books | The Guardian

To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. So this graphic novel fit right like a glove. Here are a few of my favorite talks between Marjane’s tough-talking grandmother, stoic mother, glamorous and eccentric aunt and their friends and neighbors: The effortless gossipy manner in which they discuss their private lives, which Satrapi captures in her Spartan yet fluid black and white illustrations, are equally touching and a delight to read.

It was good to see how freely all of these women talked about their sex lives and that guilt and shame weren’t part of the equation. I live for those moments when my mother and I get to discuss old memories of hers and mine.

A subversive sisterhood

I long for more and more. What a great broderkes It was quite easy to relate to these women and their way of talking – gossip, after all, is the same all around the world. It’s about the thrill of secrets, the fear of being caught and the brief taste of freedom that comes along with living in such uncertain times. The men, mainly fussy and faithless, come off badly.

In Embroideries the art was not as carefully brodwries looked datrapi together, too hectic at times as in her Persepolis series, but I still enjoyed the story.

Embroideries is a paean to taking pleasure seriously and is, in the light of the pinched strictures of the fundamentalists, a subversive as well as satisfying, book. According to Persepolis, one Scud hit the house next to hers, killing her friend and entire family.

Embroideries by Marjane Satrapi

Fiery, independent and articulate, these women are very far from the Western images of Iran which often fail to look beyond the veil. I was absolutely fascinated with their gossipy personalities and how comfortable they felt at poking fun at the men in their lives. I was disappointed by Marjane Satrapi’s follow up to the fantastic two volume “Persepolis”. I would recommend the book only satrpi Satrapi fans.

I almost choked laughing so hard. Namanya juga anak-anak, tambah dilarang tambah nekat ama penasaran ; Pas baca Who would not like to be a part of it or even get a glimpse of customs in Iran. View all 5 comments.
