by Marjane Satrapi
£9.99   paperback  Vintage (2008)

Embroideries by Marjane Satrapi From the author of the highly acclaimed two-volume comic strip autobiography Persepolis, here is a gloriously entertaining and revealing comic-book look into the sex lives of women. When Marjane Satrapi's tough-talking grandmother, mother, eccentric aunt and their friends and neighbours gather for an afternoon of tea-drinking and talking, the conversation naturally turns to love, sex and the vagaries of Iranian men.
As the day progresses, these vibrant women share sercrets and outrageous tales about everything from how to fake your virginity to how to enjoy the miracles of plastic surgery to how to take advantage of being someone's mistress.
By turns heartbreaking and hilarious, these stories lift the veil off the real, private lives of Iranian women and - perfectly captured in Satrapi's simple, beguiling drawings - reveal the connections between women everywhere.
