Currently reading

Persepolis, and Persepolis2, by Marjane Satrapi, an autobiographical graphic novel of a woman who grew up during the Islamic Revolution in Iran.

The books have been made into an animated film which opened on both coasts just yesterday. I think it'll be worth a trip to the theater when it comes to fly-over zone..

UPDATE: After spending hours in bed with cups of tea, I just finished reading these books. Voraciously. I couldn't put them down until I got to the end. And, wow, they are so good. I highly recommend them.

The last line? "Freedom had a price."

I read "Reading Lolita in Tehran" and thought it was pretty phenomenal, it sounds good too.

I remember a line from something, regarding "the best art comes from the tortured, the artist in pain."
