In life you ll meet a lot of jerks If they hurt you tell yourself that it s because they re stupid That will help keep you from reacting to their cruelty Because there is nothing worse than bitterness and vengeance Always keep your dignity and be true to yourself Advice to Marjane s from her grandmother Persepolis The Story of a Childhood the first volume is the intimate memoir of a spirited young girl who had to grow up in the chaos of a society under a stiffly ruled regime which was going through phases of unrest in the form of oppression revolution horrors of war and religious rigidity Marjane Satrapi was born in 1969 in Rasht Iran and the country was going through a momentous political transition during that time Through bold and contrasting black and white inking and simple artwork the artist opens a window through which the reader can witness the daily life it s emotions the history and terror from those days leading to and following the Islamic revolution as seen through Marjane s own eyes Persepolis The Story of a Childhood brings some of the key moments of Iran s history during the 70s and 80s like the oust of Shah s regime the triumph of the Islamic Revolution and subseuent morphing of the society towards orthodoxy through banning of secular education and imposing the veil the devastating effects of war with Ira it s refugee situations all beautifully intertwined with the personal moments from Marjane s family with strong humor which makes the narrative special for the reader Marjane was born into a well to do family and her parents were uite liberal in their outlook and this makes Marjene who is intelligent and outspoken as a child to have her own opinions and views on everything that is happening around her At times her outspoken character and passion for freedom lands her in trouble at school and even with authorities Being born into a well to do atmosphere helps her in bringing out the sharp contrast in her family s life and the general life of the outside public in a vividness a contrast which is contributed by the clever use of the black and white frames Though each frame Marjane try to find an explanation and solution for the madness happening around her Some of the visuals like those which show her having imaginary conversations with god about matters around her when she is nine conversations with her uncle who was imprisoned in USSR the way she shows her anger at God asking him to get out from her room on the night of hearing her uncles death her visual interpretation of the state fed recruitment campaign of to die a martyr is to inject blood into the veins of society she furtively smoking a cigarette in protest against the dictatorship of her mother and then self declaring with the first cigarette I kissed childhood goodbye she glimpsing the horrors of war through victims of chemical warfare at a hospital facility are uite powerful in their depictionIn the scene where Marjane comes across the body of her friend from the neighborhood among the rubbles after a missile attack there is a single frame of illustration which can be seen as one of the most brilliant uses of the visual format of storytelling When she covers her face in horror with her hand the total numbness and pain that Marjane feels over her friend s death can be experienced in next cartoon panel which is totally blank and black with a small subtext No scream in the world could have relieved my suffering anger This cleverness and creativity of the author as an illustrator can be further seen in the depictions of the young Marjane herself The various emotions surprise anger frustration confusion helplessness terror that the artist capture on the face of young Marji gives the character a soul which can make her feel like a long known friend for the reader The narrative of the first volume ends when Marjane leaves for Austria when she is 15 to continue her studies at a liberal and open European environment Persepolis The Story of a Childhood is a powerful and heartbreaking graphical rendering of the dark times of a society which was shrouded in the horrors of war and oppression from the viewpoints of a young girl who is confused and trying to understand what is happening around her The tasteful humor and dominant insights that the author artfully infuses into her visual panels gives this book a freshness which will invigorate reader rather than completely sliding him into the chasms of depression and sadness This is one of those graphic novels which can find audience even among those readers who are uite skeptical about the comic book genre A note to the reader Since Persepolis The Story of a Childhood is told from the perspective of the young Marjane the author intent seems to focus around expressing her confusions her doubts and her attempts in trying to understand the world into which she was born Understanding the fact that the author was not trying to create an accurate historical or political volume on Iran will help you in enjoying this book in a better way This can be read from the words of Marjane Satrapi herself in an interview from 2008 I use myself to talk about other things I m not a historian not a sociologist I m a person born in a place where I ve seen some stuff That s why I put myself in as a character
