Chicken with Plums

Chicken with Plums - Marjane Satrapi, Anjali Singh I was looking for 'Persepolis' by the same author, but as it was not available, I picked this one up instead. I found the title quaint, and it turns out that it is a name of an Iranian dish. It has a shadowing of moroseness (the central character's), but it is balanced out by the telling and drawing of the surrounding details. There is a scene which depicts 'An Appointment in Samarra', which I thought was very cleverly included.
