Read full description of the books:



Persépolis es la historia autobiográfica de la iraní Marjane Satrapi, la historia de cómo creció en un régimen fundamentalista islámico que la acabaría llevando a abandonar su país.

El primer cómic empieza a partir del año 1979, cuando Marjane tiene diez años y, desde su perspectiva infantil, es testigo de un cambio social y político que pone fin a más de cincuenta años de reinado del sha de Persia en Irán para dar paso a una república islámica.

Además de diferenciarse de los demás niños por haber sido educada al estilo occidental dentro de una familia de clase alta y por unos padres de ideología progresista y partidarios del islamismo moderado, `Marji` (como la conoceremos al principio de la historia) también tiene una considerable inquietud intelectual para una niña de su edad y notable imaginación que la lleva a mantener conversaciones con Dios -al que encuentra un curioso parecido con Karl Marx- o soñar con llegar a ser algún día la última profeta que siga los pasos de Jesús y Mahoma. La historia de unos antepasados ilustres (su bisabuelo fue el último rey de la dinastía persa de los Qadjar), una familia que se opone activamente al gobierno del Sha, las manifestaciones, la diferencia de clases sociales o la marginación de la niña son algunas de las piezas del rompecabezas que Marji se esfuerza por componer con la intención de comprender el mundo que la rodea. Al tiempo que va creciendo, Marjane se da cuenta de que el nuevo régimen islámico por el que lucharon sus padres ha caído en manos de los integristas y que no trae consigo nada bueno.

Read information about the author

Ebook Persepolis, Volume 1 read Online! Marjane Satrapi (Persian: مرجان ساتراپی) is an Iranian-born French contemporary graphic novellist, illustrator, animated film director, and children's book author. Apart from her native tongue Persian, she speaks English, Swedish, German, French and Italian.

Satrapi grew up in Tehran in a family which was involved with communist and socialist movements in Iran prior to the Iranian Revolution. She attended the Lycée Français there and witnessed, as a child, the growing suppression of civil liberties and the everyday-life consequences of Iranian politics, including the fall of the Shah, the early regime of Ruhollah Khomeini, and the first years of the Iran-Iraq War. She experienced an Iraqi air raid and Scud missile attacks on Tehran. According to Persepolis, one Scud hit the house next to hers, killing her friend and entire family.

Satrapi's family are of distant Iranian Azeri ancestry and are descendants of Nasser al-Din Shah, Shah of Persia from 1848 until 1896. Satrapi said that "But you have to know the kings of the Qajar dynasty, they had hundreds of wives. They made thousands of kids. If you multiply these kids by generation you have, I don't know, 10-15,000 princes [and princesses]. There's nothing extremely special about that." She added that due to this detail, most Iranian families would be, in the words of Simon Hattenstone of The Guardian, "blue blooded."

In 1983, at the age of 14 Satrapi was sent to Vienna, Austria by her parents in order to flee the Iranian regime. There she attended the Lycée Français de Vienne. According to her autobiographical graphic novel, Persepolis, she stayed in Vienna through her high school years, staying in friends' homes, but spent three months living on the streets. After an almost deadly bout of pneumonia, she returned to Iran. She studied Visual Communication, eventually obtaining a Master's Degree from Islamic Azad University in Tehran.

During this time, Satrapi went to numerous illegal parties hosted by her friends, where she met a man named Reza, a veteran of the Iran-Iraq War. She married him at the age of 21, but divorced roughly three years later. Satrapi then moved to Strasbourg, France.
