Oh my, I read this so long ago now that I can't remember that much about it! I know I loved it when I read it as it's marked as a favorite on my list. And I know that it's written by Marjane Satrapi, who also wrote the fantastic Persepolis
. Chicken with Plum
s was just as good in terms of the genius of coupling serious subject matter with the graphic medium and complicated issues with the simple drawings.
I got this book from the lovely Melody
, my secret santa. Thanks Melody, I really enjoyed it!
If you're not into comics but would like to try them, Marjane Satrapi is a good place to start and Chicken with Plums
is a good one of hers to start with, as it's short but endearing.
Anyway, enough vague comments! I hope that all of you are well. I'm fine, back at work now and trying to find a balance between that and family life and my own stuff. It's hard but I'm having a great time!

I'm so glad you enjoyed this one, Joanna! And that reminds me I need to read Persepolis soon! :)
Hi Melody! Yes, you deifnitely should read that soon, you'll like it, I think!
Welcome back! I hope you find your balance soon. :)
I wasn't a big fan of Persephone, but I did enjoy Embroideries so I'll probably give this a try at some point.
Thanks Eva! I don't have Embroideries yet, but I'm sure I'll get it! :-)
I haven't done any of the books by this author, though I watched the movie version of Persephone. And now I feel like since EVERYONE has read these, I'm not sure if I would get anything that interesting from them. But I do love the whole graphic memoir genre :-)
Oh do try it Aarti, it's so good!!!
