What Has Mr. Smidl Been Reading?
Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood (Persepolis, #1)

Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi

Many people make assumptions about the citizens of the Middle East.  We criticize their attire, their religion, or even their customs. But this memoir articulates that the author was not that much different than the kids growing up in the US during the 1980's.  Marjane listened to Iron Maiden, loved clothes, thought for herself, but she also grew up during the time of the Islamic Revolution.  This graphic novel memoir illustrates a variety of vignettes (snapshot) during her time in Iran and when she traveled to Austria to study.
