46 Down, 6 To Go (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

Having been very impressed with Marjane Satrapi's graphic memoirs Persepolis and Perepolis 2, (and only slightly less with the third volume in the series, Embroideries), I greatly anticipated this graphic novel.

This story of Satrapi's great-uncle is short at 83 pages, but the tale of loss is haunting. I read the book in less than an hour, but its themes have stuck with me ever since. Marjane Satrapi again shows why she is one of our most talented storytellers with this book.

My next book is The Road, by Cormac McCarthy.
