Persepolis is a brilliant illustrated autobiography by Marjane Satrapi.
Deep in its message yet wonderfully depicted through illustration, this is a must read. The author captures her childhood in Iran during the Islamic Revolution in a most endearing style. I am a fan of Marjane Satrapi & would highly recommend this book, which is sheer talent with a story.
Persepolis has also been adapted into a film but nothing like getting hold of the book!
