      Family gossip is my Achilles heel I live for those moments when my mother and I get to discuss old memories of hers and mine.So this graphic novel fit right like a glove.Embroideries starts out with Marjane Satrapi and her family and friends sitting down with their drinks to devote themselves to their favorite activity discussion.There was talk of marriage, love, unfeasible men, sex, double standards, body image simply put, Embroideries included everything I love discussing with my family and so [...]

      To speak behind others backs is to ventilate the soul a dictum from Marjane Satrapi s grandmother.Reading Embroideries from Marjane Satrapi was like reading some missing pages from Persepolis , her renowned autobiographical series In Persepolis she gave much insights to the reader about the social and political life of Iran during her childhood, but through Embroideries Satrapi manages to illustrate the closed personal world of Iranian women in an amusing manner.In this slice of an autobiography [...]

      I rarely if ever read books on the subject of sex or marriage, but Embroideries is about much than these things It s about normal women who have adapted to oppression and learned how to expertly hide who they really are It s about the thrill of secrets, the fear of being caught and the brief taste of freedom that comes along with living in such uncertain times It s about fashion, fun and also fright Told in beautiful illustrations from the author of the equally incredible Persepolis, Embroideri [...]

      Reading this graphic novel was like being invited to tea with a group of Iranian women, except that the talk turned interestingly enough to arranged marriages, cheating husbands, and faking your virginity The images strengthened the words in such a way that when I was done reading it I actually felt like I knew and had spent a little time with these women.It s interesting, because their conversation makes it seem like they have some power while living under harsh social restrictions but as a Wes [...]

    9. Hilda on said:

      I was disappointed by Marjane Satrapi s follow up to the fantastic two volume Persepolis In Embroideries , the setting is an after dinner tea party between several women of different ages telling their stories abut love and sex The potential is fantastic to really delve into the beliefs and traditions surrounding these topics But rather than tell the complete stories with depth, she merely flits over them, so that you get a taste but little substance She tells the stories of about 7 women in 144 [...]

      Leggere Taglia e cuci trasporta il lettore normalmente escluso in quanto maschio e soprattutto la lettrice in un consesso in cui si parla e si sparla liberamente, si ride e si beve.Sono occasioni di incontro e di confronto in cui un apparente leggerezza dei toni permette di affrontare temi complicati e di ottenere, quando necessario, un consiglio o una sgridata.La Satrapi molto brava a rendere sulla pagina una situazione universale che in ogni Paese declinata in maniera leggermente diversa in ba [...]

      If you ve read her graphic memoir you would already know that Marjane Satrapi was born in 1969 in Rasht, Iran She grew up in Tehran, where she studied at the French school, before leaving for Vienna and then Strasbourg to study illustration Persepolis provided insights into the social and political life in Iran during the Mohammad Reza Shah regime and the subsequent Iranian revolution Embroideries, however, couldn t be a different take on illustrating her own experiences Satrapi decided to only [...]

      The embroideries of the book s title refer to the surgical restoration of one s vagina to a state similar to that of a virgin Whether this includes hymen reconstruction or merely the tightening of an age and use worn genitalia, Satrapi s book never makes clear In the end, it doesn t really matter, probably What is equally unclear is the reason for naming her extended anecdote in this way Really, I just don t know.Embroideries covers the ground of a single afternoon s conversation between ten wom [...]

      awal na bingung dengan judul na bordir kirain diskusi selama kisah ini berlangsung ketika acara membordir bersama, atau mungkin kegiatan membordir yang notabene kebanyakan dikerjakan oleh perempuan membuat para perempuan ini saling bercerita, ngobrol dengan peserta lain ternyata jauh banget hubungan nagiatan ini dilakukan bukan saat membaut bordir tapi saat minum teh dan bordir di sini menggunakan media yang berbeda tidak hanya sekedar obrolan, tapi kalau dicermati lebih lagi 1 perempuan hobi ba [...]

      Dove ero io quando dovevo conoscere la Satrapi Io la amo gi , sto aspettando trepidante che Persepolis arrivi a casa Una trama che pu sembrare a prima vista banale e gi vista , ma che permette al lettore occidentale di conoscere la situazione delle donne in Iran il matrimonio, il sesso e cosa voglia dire nascere donna in questo paeseDivertente, toccante e illuminante Marjane sei la mia nuova eroina To speak behind others backs is to ventilate the soul.

    16. Ceilidh on said:

      A much chatty account than Persepolis but one full of warmth, humour and a group of fascinating women sharing their wisdom Through the eyes of a 21st century British feminist, the women s ideas of empowerment and control in relationships are a little tough to swallow, but there s something undeniably powerful in the way these stories are told to us no mincing of words, just the truth, with all the sadness and humour contained within.

    17. Nirav on said:

      WHAT A FUCKING HILARIOUS QUICK READ Damn, Satrapi never stops to amaze you and make you laugh at the same time Persepolis was so good and Embroideries is no less A conversation over a cup of tea one afternoon in Tehran over sex and secrets being shared among the women in you family and neighbourhood Who would not like to be a part of it or even get a glimpse of customs in Iran Finished in one shot, that s how amazing and laughable this book was.

      Fatty made me read it by dangling the it s totally your kind of graphic novel line Thank you, Fatty _ I ll post a review tomorrow hopefully because I am so tired hungry that I accidentally wrote tortilla instead of totally and my dog is growling at me to turn off the lights.

      Embroideries adalah buku karya Marjane Satrapi kedua yang saya baca Sebelumnya saya beruntung memperoleh buku Revolusi Iran, Dongeng seorang anak ditumpukan buku bekas di Pasar Buku Palasari.Jika dalam Dongeng seorang anak, cerita cerita yang disajikan cukup kelam , bagaimana Marji kecil menghadapi revolusi Iran, dalam Embroideries diterjemahkan menjadi Bordir dibahas kisah lucu sekaligus getir yang terjadi di antara para wanita Iran tersebut.Dibuka dengan makan siang bersama di rumah keluarga M [...]

      Le ton est l ger, avec une bonne dose d humour, malgr un sujet plut t grave, ce qui nous fait un m lange int ressant Chaque histoire repr sente un aspect de l intimit des femmes iraniennes, et laisse apercevoir la fois les mailles d une soci t et ses traditions, ainsi que les changements qui la traverse aujourd hui Au final, rien de particuli rement transcendant, mais c est dr le et int ressant et a m rite bien une petite lecture.

    23. Gauri on said:

      Marjane Satrapi is most probably my favorite graphic novel illustrator This is the last book I ve read of hers that is autobiographical, and it doesn t necessarily hold up to the weight of the Persepolis series, but it is valuable in its own way In this novel, Satrapi and her female relatives discuss their love lives and their sex lives, and they especially discuss societal issues regarding virginity No doubt this book touches on the broad subject of feminism, which is, concern for women s sanct [...]

    24. Ferdy on said:

      Spoilers Sometimes funny, and sometimes quite horrifying but all rather eye opening I was really impressed by how much Iranian culture, history, and humour could be infused into what amounted to be a simple, every day gathering of Iranian woman having tea and a gap shap gossip The women talk about first loves, sex, arranged marriages, forced marriages and husbands in general I was quite surprised by how modern and forward thinking some of the women were having plastic surgery, taking lovers, dis [...]

    25. Raina on said:

      For anyone who s ever wondered what dating, marriage, and sex is like from the perspective of Iranian women Satrapi uses her considerable skill to record the experiences of her inner circle The illustrations are less panel based than I remember inPersepolis As I look at the cover and remember the contents, the keyword that comes to mind is coy Read withIf You Could Be Mine and Secret Keeper byMitali Perkins.

    26. Pequete on said:

      I was expecting a lot from this book It was an interesting read about the conversations of a series of Iranian women of different ages covering topics like arranged marriages, cheating husbands, and faking your virginity But it all sounded too superficial, in a women against men way I missed a few stories where dissimulation and cheating were not the norm, as I am sure there must be at least some As it is, the book just turned out a caricature, funny at times, but mostly bitter and sad And now [...]

      Mannaggia, come mai non l 8 Marzo No, perch questo uno dei libri pi femministi che io abbia mai letto Sebbene le conversazioni delle invitate a casa Satrapi, e delle Satrapi stesse, sono testimonianza di un mondo dove uomo e donna sembrano lontani anni luce ma sarebbe cos anche nel salotto delle nostre vecchie comari , lo spirito e la mentalit arguta e moderna di ognuna di loro rendono gli episodi raccontati divertenti e spassosi
