Christmas is coming and maybe some of you are still to finish their Christmas shopping. I thought this would be a good time to be a bit materialistic, try to forget that the world terribly sucks at the moment and post a last minute Gift Guide for book lovers here. I need a bit of thoughtlessness and I’m sure you do too. Let’s start with the beautiful books – picture above!
Christmas is coming and it’s high time to present to you my little Christmas Gift Guide (I reckon this will probably not be the last one…)
1) Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi (Vintage Publishing)
I have already told you about this wonderful graphic novel in my Persopolis review (it was here). Probably one of the best graphic novels to offer to someone who doesn’t know much about graphic novels. This graphic novel, in which the author recounts her childhood and teenage years under the oppressive regime of the new Islamic Republic of Iran, is a good introduction to the autobiographic graphic novels (which is a big part of the genre).
