Embroideries by Marjane Satrapi

I also read this over the weekend.  It's a graphic novel memoir that looks at the marriages and physical relationships of a group of Iranian women.  It is told as an afternoon of secrets and shocking (humorous) stories that the women share over tea.  Marjane Satrapi is the author of The Complete Persepolis, which was one of my favorite books last year.  This was light and entertaining, and it did not have the serious themes of The Complete Persepolis.  I am very interested in reading more from this talented author.
