Human and Humorous
on September 28, 2009
The Iranian Revolution is one of the most important events of the 20th Century, and one of the most misunderstood.
This wonderful set of graphic novels tells the story of an Iranian girl and her family during the revolution. Told with a subtle humanity and a wry sense of humor in the midst of horror and tragedy, it speaks to the human face of Iran and the Revolution with a power that few novels or histories ever approach.
I often recommend this to friends by telling them that if they want to understand the human face of Iran, they should read this book. Honestly though, this set gives more than just some insight into Iran -- it gives some insight into being human.
I would not say it is a remarkably good graphic novel. I would say it is a remarkably good novel, period.
