IRAN IN PEN & INK

Can a cartoon strip really tell you much about the reality of life in Iran? Yes, if it's drawn by Marjane Satrapi, creator of "Persepolis", a sort of graphic companion to Azar Nafisi's "Reading Lolita in Tehran". I first came across Satrapi's work a couple of years ago in the wonderful daily instalments published in Libération. She now gets the heavyweight treatment in the latest edition of The New York Review of Books.
