About this interview
Persepolis is Marjane Satrapi's autobiographical graphic novel of her childhood in Iran. Satrapi's novel spans the tumultuous years of the 1979 Iranian revolution and the devastating Iran-Iraq War that followed soon after. The book's stark black and white artwork echos the difficult choices she faces as she and her family struggle to adapt their lives to life under a regime of religious fundamentalist revolutionaries.
Dr. Valerie Reimers is a retired professor of English in the SWOSU Department of Language and Literature. She recently presented her paper "Satrapi's Persepolis: Displacements/Continuities and the Poetry of the Graphic Memoir" at the South Central Modern Language Association in Baton Rouge, LA.
