Almost all are about sex and while men are borrados bad, the women are also silly, overly romantic and as often victims of their own weaknesses.

What elevates this satrzpi is the natural flow satrspi the dialogue and the sense that we are fully included into this family. I’m an Amazon Affiliate. Daniel Smith rated it did not like it Nov 30, There should be more graphic novels about women’s sex lives. The book was basically a collection of gossip shared between old and young women divorced, single, virgins, open-minded, or traditional.

I have to say, the book does portray the relationships between men and women and their mother in laws, marriage, etc quite accurately. I was disappointed by Marjane Satrapi’s follow up to the fantastic two volume “Persepolis”.

In this book, Satrapi didn’t use the panel frames she uses in Persepolis and that are common in graphic novels, the drawings are all over the page, less constrained. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. I think that generally speakinga dick isn’t really photogenic. It’s a comic following a conversation amongst women in Iran. They are everyday women, but with their own personal twists strapi nothing terribly exotic about it.

I’d like to read this book on Kindle Don’t have a Kindle? It feels like a shallow treatment of a deep subject. In Persepolis we see a culture where women were treated in a vastly different manner than men.

But, as a whole, there’s a whole marjzne more here to appreciate then just shocking the conservative cultural norms of the west. I wondered if the public library in my town might have some of her books on hand since they’ve just added in a collection of graphic novels upstairs for adult readers.

Bagaimana dengan jahit selapur dara? She experienced an Iraqi air raid and Scud missile attacks on Tehran. The scene is a group of women, most related; taking a tea break after serving a lunch, then cleaning up and while the men folk sleep it off- The women talk, gossip and tell secrets. Sex is what this book is all about.

I read Embroideries at my local bookshop and am glad to leave it at that. Unfortunately, it also did not strike me as particularly well done. My senior year in college I was introduced to a graphic novel memoir by Art Spiegelman entitled Maus. While Persepolise 1 certainly was a daring work, I’m sure the story was much more palatable to many people because it was about a little girl who was not overtly sexual.

But this book seemed to subvert the femininity instead of merely observing or even celebrating it. Not sure if I’d be comfortable recommending it though.


The title, Embroideries, refers to a medical procedure in which women are sewn up so that they bleed—like virgins—during sexual intercourse. Furthermore, the comic displays homophobic statements which are not called out.

Finished in one shot, that’s how amazing and laughable this book was.

See 1 question about Bordados…. There’s nothing extremely special about that. Pretty humorous for the most part, intimate, it feels very connected to the specific culture the author is introducing. But then again, I’m not an Iranian woman Well all that is for his wife. A couple Considering how great Persepolis was, I thought Embroideries would be a great read too. Paperbackpages. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Oct 07, Robin P.

This one did what I needed and more. Basically, it could have been much, much better. Lists with This Book. I almost choked laughing so hard. I boreados an amazing afternoon with this book.

Some amusing anecdotes – the structure or lack thereof basically consists of eavesdropping on a group of Iranian women as they discuss sex and virginity – but it’s a very slight work, even if you don’t compare it to The Complete Persepolis. Might be interesting to women. Not great literature, not brilliant comic book art. Clearly a book just for women.
