Read Persepolis 2: The Story of a Return
Persepolis 2: The Story of a Return, first published in 2004, is the second part of Marjane Satrapi’s graphic novel memoir, sequel to Persepolis 1: The Story of A Childhood. While the first book focuses on the childhood of Marji (short for Marjane), when she was around 10 to 13 years old, the second book explores her more mature stages of life: her high school and college years, her marriage and divorce, and her adulthood. That is why Persepolis 2 is considered more than a mere memoir graphic novel, but also a bildungsroman (a coming-of-age story).

In Persepolis 2: The Story of a Return graphic novel, Marjane Satrapi revisits her high school years in Vienna, Austria. She highlights how she dealt with new friends, her relationship with boys, and her experience with drugs. Satrapi then recollects her return to her home country Iran and how the oppression felt even more so for her while she was struggling with her own depression. She then highlights the important events she had during college in Iran, her marriage and divorce. She closes the second part of her graphic memoir with how she took the most important decisions in her life.

Just like the first graphic novel, the second book is also constructed of 19 short sections (chapters). Each of those sections is made of around 7-10 pages.

Persepolis 2: The Story of A Return has successfully won several awards including the Angoulême International Comics Festival Prize for Scenario in Angoulême, France, for its script and in Vitoria, Spain, for its commitment against totalitarianism.
