About the Author

Marjane Satrapi was born in 1969 in Rasht, Iran. She now lives in Paris, where she is a regular contributor to magazines and newspapers throughout the world, including "The New Yorker" and "The New York Times." She is also the author of several children's books, "Embroideries," and the internationally best-selling and award-winning comic book autobiography in two parts, "Persepolis" and "Persepolis 2." "Persepolis" is currently being made into an animated feature film, cowritten and codirected by Satrapi, which will be distributed by Sony Picture Classics in 2007.

"Tantalizing . . . Bold, bewitchingly humorous and politically astute." --"Elle

""As funny, opinionated, controversial, and surprising as any good comic or conversation should be." --"Time.com"

"Subversive . . . Satrapi's book is a mocking rebuke to the cult of chastity, and a statement about the way human passions find their way around the most determined repression." --"Salon
