Revue de presse

Praise for Chicken with Plums

“It’s amazing to see how much complexity and narrative cunning Satrapi crams into her images . . . Chicken with Plums is the most intricately laminated of her tales: The author shuffles past, present, and future like a cardsharp.”
Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Beguiling . . . Completely seamless.”
The Boston Globe

“Satrapi pushes the boundaries of her work further still . . . [She is] an Iranian Colette.”
San Francisco Chronicle


“Satrapi’s deceptively simple, remarkably powerful drawings match the precise but flexible prose she employs in adapting to her multiple roles as educator, folklorist, and grand-niece.”
The New Yorker

Praise for Persepolis

“A memoir of growing up as a girl in revolutionary Iran, Persepolis provides a unique glimpse into a nearly unknown and unreachable way of life . . . That Satrapi chose to tell her remarkable story as a gorgeous comic books makes it unique and totally indispensable.”

“It is virtually impossible to read Persepolis without falling in love.”
Baltimore Sun

“The most original coming-of-age story from the Middle East yet.”

“A mighty achievement.”
USA Today

“Wildly charming.”
The New York Times Book Review

Présentation de l'éditeur

“Chicken with Plums is a feast you’ll devour.”

Acclaimed graphic artist Marjane Satrapi brings what has become her signature humor and insight, her keen eye and ear, to the heartrending story of a celebrated Iranian musician who gives up his life for music and love.

When Nasser Ali Khan, the author’s great-uncle, discovers that his beloved instrument is irreparably damaged, he takes to his bed, renouncing the world and all its pleasures. Over the course of the week that follows, we are treated to vivid scenes of his encounters with family and friends, flashbacks to his childhood, and flash-forwards to his children’s future. And as the pieces of his story fall into place, we begin to understand the breadth of his decision to let go of life.

The poignant story of one man, it is also stunningly universal—a luminous tale of life and death, and the courage and passion both require of us.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Seeing the Elephant 3 août 2007
Par Sally - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Drawn in bold black and white, Marjane Satrapi's graphic novel illustrates the moving and disturbing life and last days of her uncle, Nasser Ali Kahn. He was a famous Iranian musician, loved for his virtuosity, and the sensitivity with which he played his beloved tar.

It's a tale of how a man's happiness was gradually eroded by his culture, loss, suppressed feelings, and unrealizable expectations.

The story starts with an older man in black walking down a city street. He encounters a slender woman with her grandchild. He hesitates. Asks if her name is Irane. She doesn't recognize him. Wonders how he knows her name. He, Nasser, apologizes and walks on to a friends business where he hopes to buy a replacement for his recently broken tar.

We later learn that the broken tar had special meaning for Nasser. When he was a young man, the parents of the woman he'd fallen in love with forbade her to marry him because he was only a musician. Losing her plunged him into deep depression. He had difficulty playing. Nasser's tar master tried to console him by telling him, "To the common man, whether you're a musician or a clown, it's one and the same. The love you feel for this woman will translate into your music. She will be in every note you play." He then gave Nasser his own tar and instructed him to go on playing.

From then on, Nasser's joy was his music. His playing thrilled his audiences

Since childhood he'd been unable to meet the conventional expectations of others. His mother's, his brother's, his teachers', the parents of the woman he loved, his wife, his children.

His mother urged him to marry a woman he didn't love so that he would forget his loss. Although the woman he married did love him, she resented his music. His children, influenced by their mother's attitude, became estranged from him. This drove him further and further into his music.

After he failed to find another tar equal to his broken one, feeling that without that tar and his music there was nothing else he wanted, Nasser came to the conclusion, "To live, it's not enough to be alive." He decided to die.

This where the novel really begins. Through Satrapi's masterful construction, we are able to piece together what we need to understand who Nassar was, and why he would make this tragic choice.

Satrapi reveals Nasser's life and character by skillfully rearranging temporal events - picking up a incident, then dropping it, and then weaving it in later on in the story with new threads. She loops the past into the present, the future into the past. Sometimes, from frame to frame, she switches back and forth between the past and the present, showing how a character's unhappy memories and lingering hurt become emotional IEDs on the path to true understanding.

There are many lenses through which to "see" another person, many ways in which to know them. At Nassaer's mother's funeral, a mystic tells him the story of five men in the dark trying to describe a whole elephant from the part each has touched. "We give meaning to life based upon our point of view," he tells Nasser. In Chicken With Plums, through characters and events, Satrapi gives us the whole elephant.

As the novel progresses, Satrapi's drawings become more expressive and surreal, adding more decorative touches. Her work resembles animation, almost cartoonish, but her story has the depth of a great novel. She has the timing of a film maker, knowing just what to show when, and how to keep the mystery and tension to the end.

Chicken With Plums has touched me deeply. It's a heart breaking story of love on many levels, fulfilled and unfulfilled. I believe Nasser died of a broken heart. Without Irane and without his music, he could not find a way to be in this world.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Chicken with Plums was Excellent!!!! 9 décembre 2012
Par Hayden Moyle - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
I love Marjane Satrapi's books. Fun to read, sometimes a bit unusual with childish pictures, a serious and rather dark storyline. A perfect mix with historical and cultural Iranian references and sometimes a bit raunchy. A quick read but one that doesn't get old. I would recommend this to everyone I know along with every other book by Satrapi. Have already loaned it to several friends and I have others waiting to loan it. Buy it!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 This is no Persepolis but still good 11 juin 2010
Par Campos - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The book is too brief, my guess is that this is just what Satrapi was able to find out from her uncle's story...
If you read if you read "Chicken with Plums" before Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood & Persepolis 2: The Story of a Return you might end up disappointed, those two graphic novels are more much complete works, if you read them first you'll end up wanting more from the author and will see this book with a different eye.
BTW, now I'm off yo get Embroideries which I should have read before this one :)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Nothing to Live For 9 mai 2008
Par Lynn Ellingwood - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is a story of a man who lives for music and a tragic love. It is a very simple yet wonderful tale of a man who doesn't seem to know how to live. He becomes a great musician but can't work and loses the love of his life due to his devotion to music. Without music and his memory of great love, he dies. The man's family, friends and relatives don't seem to count in his estimation of life. I found this book very moving and very touching. I think some reviewers took offense since it differs from her most famous book but this one holds its own and is very special. I highly recommend this book. It is very touching and the ending is just as tragic as the main character's life.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Moving Persian Romance 13 février 2007
Par M. K. Solomon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is more than one remove from Persepolis I and II (which I also loved) but well-told, well-drawn, and moving. Reminding me of Persian miniatures and medieval Persian romance, it tells the story of Nasser Ali Khan, a true musician, his love, and his death. There are also some fascinating asides into the lives of other family members. Having lived two years in Tehran, I loved it because it reminded me of the culture I loved. Ms. Satrapi's work never fails to move and surprise me; more, please!
