    Marjane Satrapi is the bestselling author and illustrator of Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood. Persepolis is the story of Satrapi's youth in Iran in the 1970s and 80s, of living through the Islamic Revolution and the war with Iraq. It is a book about childhood, a childhood at once outrageous and ordinary.
    When first published, Persepolis met with enormous critical acclaim, garnering comparisons to Art Spiegelman's Maus, and won several prestigious comic book awards. It has since been translated into more than forty languages.
    Satrapi's live-action film Chicken with Plums, based on her book by the same name, premiered in 2011 and she recently directed The Voices (2014) starring Ryan Reynolds.
