children can be so honest... so why not write a children's book for adults about growing up in Iran?
the story, a three volume series, will give you some perspective on what the people in Iran (and Iraq) have been through in recent years... through the eyes of someone who lived it - Marjane Satrapi (picture below)
My friend Chris says "its more informative than anything I think I've ever read about the Middle East" - specifically IRAN. It's a comic book in black and white called PERSEPOLIS. Buy this book here. Thanks to Ben for lending me Vol 1 and 2 which i read in two days while in NYC last month.
