Reviewer: Fernanda Eberstadt, (New York Times Book Review)

"Marjane Satrapi's PERSEPOLIS is the latest and one of the most delectable examples of a booming postmodern genre: autobiography by comic book....Contemporary American cartoonists tend often to operate in a twilight zone of ironically diminished expectation [while] PERSEPOLIS, by contrast, dances with drama and insouciant wit."

Reviewer: Gloria Emerson, (Nation)

"[Satrapi] is such a talented artist and her black-and-white drawings are so captivating, it seems wrong to call her memoir a comic book....What Satrapi hopes to do is defend her country, and her beguiling memoir should accomplish that for many readers."

Reviewer: Patricia Storace, (New York Review of Books)

"[I]mplacably witty and fearless."
