["A] self-portrait of the artist as a young girl, rendered in graceful black-and-white comics that apply a childlike sensibility to the bleak lowlights of recent Iranian history . . . [Her] style is powerful; it persuasively communicates confusion and horror through the eyes of a precocious preteen."QVillage Voice.Hide synopsis
