Summary: In the tradition of graphic memoirs such as Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis, comes the story of a young Iranian woman's struggles with growing up under Shiite Law, her journey into adulthood, and the daughter whom she had to leave behind when she left Iran. NYLON ROAD is a window into the soul of a culture that we are still struggling to understand. Beautifully told, poignant, this is a powerful work about the necessity of freedom.
