Embroideries


1st graphic novel that I read, written by Marjane Satrapi. Found this book accidentally in Gramedia. Grabbed it. Read it. Finish it within second. Yay…I usually read thick novel, so this book is a piece of cake. But..tell you what, this book successfully put me in a long laugh. Entertaining.

The story is about Iranian women and what topics they usually discuss during their tea time.Well…woman is woman. The topics are mostly about love, sex, and all men stuff.

So, you’ll find story about Marjane grandma, her calm mother, her glamorous auntie and all their friends and neighbors. They share stories about virginity, plastic surgery and becoming a mistress.

Telling in simple conversation –-sometimes funny, yet tragic—make us feel as one of them, sharing ours and listening to the topics that sometimes already experienced by us.
