I was wandering around the campus bookstore, looking at the required reading for classes that I wish I could take, and I ran across this:
Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi
It's a graphic novel about a young Iranian girl coming of age during the revolution. She was old enough to start in a French school before the crackdown began, so she tries to figure out who she is right as others begin enforcing the religious laws.
Anyway, it's just wonderful. I ended up buying it and reading it last night (and the second volume, which is just as good).
There is supposed to be a movie out too, and it looks pretty wonderful. I think that's going to go on the old netflix queue
