Poulet aux prunes (Chicken with plums, 2011) was absolutely gorgeous


Marjane Satrapi is the author of the bestselling graphic novel Persepolis, an account of her life in Iran, which she left when she was 14. “I drew Persepolis with a pedagogical purpose, for the Western public. I had heard so many stupid things about my country. Some thought they knew more than me about Iran, because they had seen Not Without My Daughter [a 1991 film set in Iran] in the cinema! We are often made to feel that a person who emigrates does so for economic reasons. I wanted to show that you leave your home because you can’t breathe any more. In a sense, I censor myself everyday. I’m responsible for what I transmit about Iran. Consequently, that limits my freedom. Words can kill. If I do something wrong in France, I know what I risk. In Iran, you can’t count on anything. For a long time, I thought I was paranoid. Then one day I was supposed to take part in an Iranian cultural event and the [Iranian] embassy in Paris said they wouldn’t take part if I were invited. Censorship is a reality.“
