Marjane Satrapi könyvei a rukkolán


Marjane Satrapi - The ​Complete Persepolis
Here, ​in one volume: Marjane Satrapi's best-selling, internationally acclaimed memoir-in-comic-strips. Persepolis is the story of Satrapi's unforgettable childhood and coming of age within a large and loving family in Tehran during the Islamic Revolution; of the contradictions between private life and public life in a country plagued by political upheaval; of her high school years in Vienna facing the trials of adolescence far from her family; of her homecoming–both sweet and terrible; and, finally, of her self-imposed exile from her beloved homeland. It is the chronicle of a girlhood and adolescence at once outrageous and familiar, a young life entwined with the history of her country yet filled with the universal trials and joys of growing up. Edgy, searingly observant, and candid, often heartbreaking but threaded throughout with raw humor and hard-earned wisdom–Persepolis is a stunning work from one of the most highly regarded, singularly talented graphic artists at work today.

Marjane Satrapi - Persepolis ​- The Story of a Childhood
Persepolis ​begins in Iran in the year 1979, when the Islamic Revolution takes place, and ten-year-old Marji's life is forever changed. Her bilingual school is closed, boys and girls are separated to different schools, and all girls must wear veils. Marji's mother protests against the veil, but when a picture of her appears in a local magazine, she disguises herself to avoid notice. Though from a very modern family, Marji is deeply religious from an early age and believes she is the last prophet of God: she writes her own holy book, which only her grandmother knows about. God speaks to Marji every night. One day at school, Marji tells everyone she wants to be a prophet. Her parents are not shocked when her teacher tells them, but when they ask Marji herself, she says she wants to be a doctor. That night she explains to God...

Marjane Satrapi - The ​Sigh
From ​the author of Persepolis, comes this illustrated fairy tale. Rose is one of three daughters of a rich merchant who always brings gifts for his girls from the market. One day Rose asks for the seed of a blue bean, but he fails to find one for her. She lets out a sigh in resignation, and her sigh attracts the Sigh, a mysterious being that brings the seed she desired to the merchant. But every debt has to be paid, and every gift has a price, and the Sigh returns a year later to take the merchant's daughter to a secret and distant palace.

Marjane Satrapi - Poulet ​aux prunes
Nasser ​Ali Khan aime le poulet aux prunes, les seins de Sophia Lauren et sa fille Farzaneh. Mais il aime surtout son tar dont il est le plus grand des virtuoses. Aussi, le jour où on lui casse son instrument, il sombre dans la plus grande apathie et, désormais indifférent aux petits et grands plaisirs de la vie, il décide de se laisser mourir.

Marjane Satrapi - Asszonybeszéd
A ​nagysikerű Persepolis alkotójának legújabb képregénye könnyed, mégis elgondolkodtató stílusban mutatja be az iráni nők szexuális életét. Márzsi szókimondó nagyanyja, excentrikus nagynénje, sztoikus anyja, valamint barátnői társalgását követhetjük nyomon egy szokásos délutáni teázás alkalmával. A szó természetesen hamar a szerelemre, a szexre és a férfiak hóbortjaira terelődik. Nem mindennapi történeteikből megtudhatjuk, hogyan veszítheti el valaki akár többször is a szüzességét, hogyan kerülhető el egy kényszerházasság, milyen előnyökkel jár a plasztikai beavatkozás, és miért kényelmes házas férfival kezdeni. Az Asszonybeszéd valójában annak a története, meddig képes egy nő elmenni, hogy megszerezze és megtartsa a választott férfit, valamint hogy eltüntesse az idő múlásának látható, fizikai jeleit. Az Asszonybeszéd karaktereinek sorsában – a kulturális környezet különbözősége ellenére is – bárhol a világon bármelyik nő magára ismerhet.

Marjane Satrapi - Embroideries
From ​the best–selling author of Persepolis comes this gloriously entertaining and enlightening look into the sex lives of Iranian women. Embroideries gathers together Marjane’s tough–talking grandmother, stoic mother, glamorous and eccentric aunt and their friends and neighbors for an afternoon of tea drinking and talking. Naturally, the subject turns to love, sex and the vagaries of men. As the afternoon progresses, these vibrant women share their secrets, their regrets and their often outrageous stories about, among other things, how to fake one’s virginity, how to escape an arranged marriage, how to enjoy the miracles of plastic surgery and how to delight in being a mistress. By turns revealing and hilarious, these are stories about the lengths to which some women will go to find a man, keep a man or, most important, keep up appearances. Full of surprises, this introduction to the private lives of some fascinating women, whose life stories and lovers will strike us as at once deeply familiar and profoundly different from our own, is sure to bring smiles of recognition to the faces of women everywhere—and to teach us all a thing or two.

Marjane Satrapi - Chicken ​with Plums
Acclaimed ​graphic artist Marjane Satrapi brings what has become her signature humor and insight, her keen eye and ear, to the heartrending story of a celebrated Iranian musician who gives up his life for music and love. When Nasser Ali Khan, the author’s great-uncle, discovers that his beloved instrument is irreparably damaged, he takes to his bed, renouncing the world and all its pleasures. Over the course of the week that follows, we are treated to vivid scenes of his encounters with family and friends, flashbacks to his childhood, and flash-forwards to his children’s future. And as the pieces of his story fall into place, we begin to understand the breadth of his decision to let go of life. The poignant story of one man, it is also stunningly universal—a luminous tale of life and death, and the courage and passion both require of us.

Marjane Satrapi - Persepolis ​- A visszatérés
Az ​utóbbi évtizedek legnagyobb hatású és legsikeresebb felnőtt képregényének második, befejező részében Marjane a háború sújtotta Iránból Ausztriába utazik, hogy ott folytassa tanulmányait. Az első részben megismert kislány Európában kamaszlánnyá érik. A serdülés változásokkal teli korszaka mellett a nyugati fiatalok szabatos életvitele is számos kihívás elé állítja a zárt iráni kultúrában felnövő Marjane-t. Életének ebben az új szakaszában is számtalan kalandot él át, miközben próbálja megérteni nemcsak a saját kultúráját, hanem a világot, sőt önmagát is. Ám amikor újabb csapások érik, és hónapokon át az utcára kényszerül, úgy dönt, hogy visszatér Iránba, ahol ekkor már a felnőtté válás nehézségeivel kell megküzdenie... Marjane Satrapi 1969-ben született Teheránban. Jelenleg Párizsban él, és újabb képregényeket alkot. A világsikerű Persepolisból saját rendezésében animációs film is készült, amely a könyv sikerét követve a 60. Cannes-i Filmfesztiválon elnyerte a zsűri nagydíját, majd Oscar-díjra jelölték.

Marjane Satrapi - Persepolis ​- Gyerekkorom Iránban
Az ​utóbbi évtizedek legnagyobb hatású és legsikeresebb felnőtt képregénye egyszerű, mégis szívhez szóló képi és nyelvi világgal mutatja be az iszlám forradalom sújtotta Iránt egy kislány szemszögéből. Azt a kort, amikor a fejkendőt kötelezővé tették az országban, és a diktatúra átvette a hatalmat. Satrapi a legtermészetesebb módon ábrázolja az iráni mindennapokat, saját családját és gyermekkori önmagát.

Marjane Satrapi - Persepolis ​I-II.
Wise, ​often funny, sometimes heartbreaking, Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood tells the story of Marjane Satrapi's life in Tehran from the ages of 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 child of radical Marxists, and the great-grandaughter of Iran's last emperor, Satrapi 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. Amidst the tragedy, Marjane's child's eye view adds immediacy and humour, and her story of a childhood at once outrageous and ordinary, beset by the unthinkable and yet buffered by an extraordinary and loving family, is immensely moving. It is also very beautiful; Satrapi's drawings have the power of the very best woodcuts. Persepolis ends on a cliffhanger in 1984, just as fourteen-year-old Marjane is leaving behind her home in Tehran, escaping fundamentalism and the war with Iraq to begin a new life in the West. In Persepolis 2: The Story of a Return we follow our young, intrepid heroine through the next eight years of her life: an eye-opening and sometimes lonely four years of high school in Vienna, followed by a supremely educational and heartwrenching four years back home in Iran. Just as funny and heartbreaking as its predecessor - with perhaps an even greater sense of the ridiculous inspired by life in a fundamentalist state - Persepolis 2 is also as clear-eyed and searing in its condemnation of fundamentalism and its cost to the human spirit. In its depiction of the universal trials of adolescent life and growing into adulthood - here compounded by being an outsider both abroad and at home, and by living in a state where you have no right to show your hair, wear make-up, run in public, date, or question authority - it's raw, honest, and incredibly illuminating.
