From the bestselling author of Persepolis comes this humorous and enlightening look at the sex lives of Iranian women.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is a book to provoke and entertain" -- Peter Millar * The Times *
"Satrapi's drawings are sparing and highly stylised; she is able to render nuances of expression with simple, bold strokes... The stories are wittily told and show a side of life in Iran that is unknown to outsiders" -- Lydia Adetunji * Financial Times *
"A daring and brilliantly calculated illumination of a secret space... Though Embroideries is not a continuation of the Persepolis story, it sits at the heart of the same world - a brutally policed society where an extraordinarily rich and inventive culture still prevails, if only behind closed doors, where women are wildly subversive, funny, free-thinking and sexy" -- Maureen Freely * Guardian *
"This is Sex and the City, Middle-Eastern style - outrageous, explicit and funny" -- Kelly Knox * Time Out *
