Annotation:
The acclaimed graphic-novelist Marjane Satrapi (PERSEPOLIS) returns with a mesmerizing tale of her great-uncle Nasser Ali Khan, an Iranian musician who takes to his bed after his precious lute is irreparably damaged. During the eight days while he waits to die, Nasser is visited, not only by family, but also by visions, Hollywood stars, and kaleidoscopic images from Iranian history, culture, and art.

Praise

"The question of what makes a life worth living has rarely been posed with as much poignancy and ambition as it is in [Marjane] Satrapi's dazzling new effort." [Starred review.] 08.28/2006

"[Marjane] Satrapi's simple black-and-white drawing style, combined with the fantastical elements of her narrative, turns CHICKEN WITH PLUMS into a great bedtime story for melancholy adults." 10/09/2006

"Satrapi's deceptively simple, remarkably powerful drawings match the precise but flexible prose she employs." 11/27/2006
