map the words out

I just finished reading Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi. I found it touching and funny and sad and interesting – it’s a fast read, full of heartbreak and unexpected sweetness and humor. I was originally put off by the black and white artwork – it kept me from buying the book a couple of times – but I found it really easy to follow and thought the artwork definitely added to the story, and the experience of reading it. I highly recommend it.
