Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi (5)
Persepolis, the Story of a Childhood is a graphic novel set in Iran in the 80's when the Shah was on his way out and the religious extremists took over the country. A young girl named Marji was growing up with her adoring parents, struggling to figure out her life, witnessing war and oppression. This is a very worthwhile book, well written and illustrated. I recommend it.
