"Persepolis was almost an educational book to [show] people the other point of view of Iran. It's a linear reading." - Satrapi

Biographical elements: It's a memoir about Satrapi's life, and it's focused on her childhood and adolescence throughout the war in Iran.

Techniques as an author: Clean and bold. She chooses her words carefully, and doesn't utilize useless adjectives and adverbs. Uses words when illustrations can't do the work.
