Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“Tantalizing . . . Bold, bewitchingly humorous and politically astute . . . A cheeky and knowing peek at the loves, sexual histories and marital secrets of . . . these beautiful and seductive women.”

“Endearing . . . A wicked read.”
Los Angeles Times

“Humorous and bawdy . . . An amusing portrayal of independent women taking life in stride.”
The Village Voice

Embroideries is as funny, opinionated, controversial and surprising as any good comic or conversation should be.”

“Subversive . . . Satrapi’s book is a mocking rebuke to the cult of chastity, and a statement about the way human passions find their way around the most determined repression.”

“By turns bawdy and heartbreaking . . . Of all Satrapi’s books, Embroideries most effectively tears down the divide between Iranian and American culture, showing how women everywhere are similar.”
The Capital Times (Madison)

Présentation de l'éditeur

From the best–selling author of Persepolis comes this gloriously entertaining and enlightening look into the sex lives of Iranian women. Embroideries gathers together Marjane’s tough–talking grandmother, stoic mother, glamorous and eccentric aunt and their friends and neighbors for an afternoon of tea drinking and talking. Naturally, the subject turns to love, sex and the vagaries of men.

As the afternoon progresses, these vibrant women share their secrets, their regrets and their often outrageous stories about, among other things, how to fake one’s virginity, how to escape an arranged marriage, how to enjoy the miracles of plastic surgery and how to delight in being a mistress. By turns revealing and hilarious, these are stories about the lengths to which some women will go to find a man, keep a man or, most important, keep up appearances.

Full of surprises, this introduction to the private lives of some fascinating women, whose life stories and lovers will strike us as at once deeply familiar and profoundly different from our own, is sure to bring smiles of recognition to the faces of women everywhere—and to teach us all a thing or two.

Marjane Satrapi mériterait le prix Nobel de la BD, si enfin on considérait cette dernière comme étant réellement de la littérature (ce qu'elle est)!

The Women 24 avril 2005
Par Genevieve S. Gibson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Embroideries is a short book by the same author who wrote the two part graphic novel memoir "Persepolis" about her childhood in Iran during and after the Islamic Revolution. I enjoyed those books because it showed real life in Iran and it wasn't just a scary state of being that is often presented to the American public. (she showed people doing their best to maintain their dignity despite extreme circumstances) I think her latest book is an extension of that. This time the author Marjane Satrapi shares the stories the women in her family tell about love, life, sex, marriage and their place in it all. Many of the stories are absolutely hilarious and others are just plain heart-breaking. The heart-breaking ones make me think of Flannery O'Connor short stories for their slightly macabre tone and people going on with living despite such experiences. It was captivating because if it wasn't for the setting I think some experiences could be universal or common for many women in the world. Again the author shows Western readers that life in Iran isn't all veils and misery as we are often told. Women often get a raw lot there but there is also gentle beauty, broad humour and a close sense of family; where these women share their stories of wild living, love and even the joys of being a mistress. The illustrations are very simple black and white drawings but they reveal much more in subtle moments.

A fly on the wall listening to old crones 9 octobre 2005
Par therosen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Marjane Satrapi, who earned her fame writing the graphic novels Persepolis and Persepolis 2, continues in the genre, retelling the stories overheard from the women in her family. Reading it is like being transported to her parlor, as they gossip about the good and bad (mostly bad) of the men in their lives.

The book's primary strength is Satrapi's relentless honesty in reporting what she sees. Weakness of characters as well as strength is portrayed. What is essentially a book of feminine sisterhood across generations also highlights personal fraility.

That said, the brevity and shallowness of topic make this significantly less moving and worthy than either Persepolis novel.

A disappointment after Persepolis, but a good light read anyway 1 février 2006
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I picked up this book after reading Persepolis, which I felt examined a lot of issues in a surprisingly deep way. I expected this book to have some unexpected insights into Iranian women and their thoughts on sexuality, marriage, and men.

So I was disappointed by this comparatively shallow book. It read like an Iranian Cosmo - lots of light, fun tidbits but no truly compelling stories or insights that stood out, or that I can even remember the day after finishing it. The stories weren't connected in any way that gave them depth, and individually they had the feel of overhearing some gossip on the bus about someone you don't know - mildly interesting but nothing to think about after it is over.

It is a great way to entertain yourself on a rainy afternoon, and the author's illustrations are quirky and expressive as usual, but don't expect to want to press this book on your friends and relatives after reading it, the way I think many of us did with Persepolis.

Concept is a bit banal but the visualization and stories lovely and daring. Too short for me...... 7 septembre 2006
Par Tsila Sofer Elguez - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
In this book we receive a third chance of meeting our former Persepolis and Persepolis 2 acquaintances; Marjane, the "observer" of life, her mother (the sensible, cool headed) and the grandmother (who in this story manages to steal the show). Embroideries presents several other characters such as the lovely aunts and relatives, each with her own unique features which Satrapi so well portrays (check out the cleavage), and her individual distinctive voice.

The idea behind "embroideries" has appeared in literature many times. A women gathering over a certain deed such as a quilting circle, baking of food or discussion of Jane Austen books, while pouring out their souls on womanly matters. In this story the gathering is around special cups of tea, brewed for at least half an hour. Satrapi however does not beat around the bush. The women move directly to Sex - the number 1 issue. Sex is a whole world of culture, politics and families. The stories are funny, sad and enraging. All feelings capsuled in short harsh hand strokes.

Just like the reading experience of Persepolis, in this story too the most striking and amazing things are told off hand.

Satrapi talks about her beloved grandmother and in the same breath tells us she was addicted to Opium. This is told as such an "everyday" fact that as you go along, you tend to accept it.

The name Embroideries first brings to mind the very womanly act of embroiding. As you read along you understand that this word has another meaning from a totally different realm. I believe that embroideries is also meant to be the "decorations" of life.

My only criticism of this book would be its length. The story is read in one sitting and definitely left me with a feeling of "not enough". I will have to wait for the next book.

I was also personally curious to know when did the gathering actually take place and how old was Satrapi at the time. Only when I write this down I understand that the book is probably the "summary" of several gatherings of the same kind and age is not really important. Maybe these are the sort of stories that the writer has heard all her life and therefore her liberal ideas and unique way of expression (comics) did not rise out of nowhere but out of her liberal intelligent background and the need to have a comical eye. These however are just my personal thoughts following the reading.

An inside look at the love lives of Iranian woman 1 août 2005
Par tpw79 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
In Marjane Satrapi's latest book, Embroideries, she takes on the sex lives of Iranian women. Like in her past books the author brings to life colorful, lively women who discuss their most inner secrets about men, love, and "getting your virginity back," as where the title of the book comes from. The stories range from a woman getting plastic surgery to keep her man interest to another woman who finds out her husband is gay only after her arranged marriage to him. The stories are funny, sad, enlightening and all around fascinating. Although many of the experiences are unique to a Muslim woman's perspective, any woman, no matter what religion, will enjoy and related to some of the stories. This book proves that no matter what part of the world a woman is from, women have to deal with the same issues of love, sex and man troubles.
