Nylon Road: 08/28/11
The graphic novel format has become an inviting medium for women to write their memories. Parsua Bashi's memoir, Nylon Road is another tale of growing up female in Iran. Readers who enjoyed the Perseopolis books will like Nylon Road.
What sets Bahsi's memoir apart is the dialog she has with herself at different ages. She examines and reexamines the decisions in her life against the person she was at different stages in her life.
Bashi's also more critical of her move to Europe. She records her culture shock and the prejudice she experience (some actual, some imagined).
