Embroideries. Marjane Satrapi.

Signed by Satrapi


Notes: A stand-alone graphic novel from the author of Persepolis. In this book, Satrapi imagines the women of her extended Iranian family sitting around drinking tea and talking about their relationships with men.

"As the afternoon progresses, these vibrant women share their secrets, their regrets and their often outrageous stories about, among other things, how to fake one’s virginity, how to escape an arranged marriage, how to enjoy the miracles of plastic surgery and how to delight in being a mistress. By turns revealing and hilarious, these are stories about the lengths to which some women will go to find a man, keep a man or, most importantly, keep up appearances."—dust jacket.
