Embroideries – A graphic novel

EmbroideriesEmbroideries by Marjane Satrapi

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Just what the back cover promised – Sex and The City, Middle Eastern style.

An afternoon tea party where conversation veers from sex, love and marriage between a group of women is bound to be intriguing, funny and catty.

A quick read for a lazy Sunday evening, Marjane Satrapi and her exquisite illustrations are a refreshing delight.

Lighter than Persepolis, the book offers a quick window to the repressed world on the outside and the liberated ideology on the inside.
