    Marjane Satrapi, a successful Iranian-French novelist, published her first novel Persepolis in 2000. The novel, which depicted her childhood in Iran during the Islamic Revolution (which was very controversial and marked by religious fanaticism), was immediately embraced by graphic novel fans and non-fans (?) alike. It was made into a movie in 2007. Satrapi has gone on to write many more successful graphic novels including: Embroideries, Chickens with Plums, and Monsters are Afraid of the Moon.
