前情提要:小小瑪嘉來自伊朗中產階級自由派的家庭。父親、叔叔都是積極的社會運動人士,母親也是享受平等權利的新女性。然而在伊朗革命之際,他們受到監視,家庭中不斷發生家人突然消失的事件…… 
  若從整個中東泛伊斯蘭教的脈絡來看,伊朗是一個 相當特別的國家。大部分住在伊朗的居民是波斯人,通行波斯語,而其歷史傳統更世界文明史上獨特而淵遠留長的一支。在二十世紀的舞台上,伊朗的國風曾經一度開放,雖是君主憲政的專制政體,國家也在此時完成現代化(西化)理想。主流信仰伊斯蘭教還未被基本教義派教徒所掌握,直到作者瑪嘉.莎塔碧(Marjane Satrapi)所經歷的1979年伊朗革命之後改朝換代,西方的價值觀被鎮壓。這是小小瑪嘉的童年。
  長大後的瑪嘉把千百個疑問與擔心畫在紙上。瑪嘉的畫風以黑白為主調,大量黑色的運用令畫面充滿力量,故事簡潔動人。隨著主角Marji的成長,大家可以深入地了解伊朗的歷史、政治和文化。 Persepolis上下二冊,在法國推出時大獲好評,被譯成十多種文字,並獲得了包括2004年德國法蘭克福書展「最佳漫畫獎」等多個漫畫書大獎。 而二十一世紀的我們,也還是問著小小瑪嘉的問題,為什麼女孩子不准上學?為什麼女生一定要帶頭紗?這是一個遙遠而古老文化在二十世紀經歷巨變的故事,也是小小瑪嘉的成長故事。
  中文版由香港三聯出版社發行。
BEST SELLER - ANEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK - A memoir of growing up as a girl in revolutionary Iran.... That Satrapi chose to tell her remarkable story as a gorgeous comic book makes it totally unique and indispensable. --TimeWise, funny, and heartbreaking, Persepolis is Marjane Satrapi’s best-selling graphic memoir of growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution.In powerful black-and-white comic strip images, Satrapi tells the story of her life in Tehran from ages six to fourteen, years that saw the overthrow of the Shah’s regime, the triumph of the Islamic Revolution, and the devastating effects of war with Iraq. The intelligent and outspoken only child of committed Marxists and the great-granddaughter of one of Iran’s last emperors, Marjane bears witness to a childhood uniquely entwined with the history of her country. Persepolis paints an unforgettable portrait of daily life in Iran and of the bewildering contradictions between home life and public life. Marjane’s child’s-eye view of dethroned emperors, state-sanctioned whippings, and heroes of the revolution allows us to learn as she does the history of this fascinating country and of her own extraordinary family. Intensely personal, profoundly political, and wholly original, Persepolis is at once a story of growing up and a reminder of the human cost of war and political repression. It shows how we carry on, with laughter and tears, in the face of absurdity. And, finally, it introduces us to an irresistible little girl with whom we cannot help but fall in love.

瑪嘉.莎塔碧(Marjane Satrapi)
  1969年生,一個長得中東面孔,講起話比西方人還大膽、直率的伊朗人。
  從小聽爸媽揭發政府弊端,認清這是個不得不革命的時代;看《辯證唯物主義》連環漫畫,發現馬克思和上帝長得超像;上街頭遊行抗議,因為革命要取得勝利,需要全體人民的支持。最大的夢想是當女先知,集上帝的正義與愛憎於一身。
  十四歲被送往維也納當小留學生,從此學會一個成年人該會的所有事情。
  2001年出版自傳漫畫《我在伊朗長大》(Persepolis),橫掃各國漫畫大獎,包括:「2004年德國法蘭克福書展-最佳漫畫獎」、「2002年法國安古蘭國際漫畫節-年度最佳漫畫獎」,有十五國譯本,全球銷售二十萬餘冊。
  反對布希,反抗強權,但強調自己不是恐怖份子,也不是女性主義者,只是說話大聲的人道主義家。目前選擇定居巴黎,因為巴黎不禁菸,而且巴黎人不平則鳴,常罷工。偶爾沒車可搭,沒電可用的巴黎是她的最愛。
Marjane Satrapi was born in 1969 in Rasht, Iran. She grew up in Tehran, where she studied at the Lycée Français before leaving for Vienna and then going to Strasbourg to study illustration. She has written several children’s books, and her illustrations appear in newspapers and magazines throughout the world, including The New Yorker and the New York Times. She currently lives in Paris.
