to tell the truth, not at all.

chicken and plums

a good companion piece to persepolis, chicken and plums tells the story marjane satrapi’s great uncle, nasser ali khan, who’s life changes after his tar is broken. satrapi’s writing and graphic style is full of wit and heart. she pulls off a feel good novel about death, and it never gets schmaltzy.
