EMBROIDERIES BY MARJANE SATRAPI PDF

The black and white, undetailed artwork of the Persepolis books looks advanced when compared to Embroideries. This looks rushed, more like a rough draft than a finished product. Embroideries is a wonderful, multi-layered book disguising itself as a sort of Middle East chicklit memoir. Satrapi turns her readers into invisible members of the group, and invites us to enjoy the world of her childhood by putting universal truths about the eternal battle of the sexes into Iranian clothes. What Embroideries does brilliantly is expose the atmosphere of ineffectual confidentiality that hangs around such gatherings. Embroideries is as funny, opinionated, controversial and surprising as any good comic or conversation should be.
