(W) Marjane Satrapi (A/CA) Marjane Satrapi by Marjane Satrapi From the acclaimed author of the best-selling Persepolis books, here is Marjane Satrapi's most accomplished and emotionally powerful work yet - the story of her great-uncle, a celebrated Iranian musician who gave up his life for music and love. Nasser Ali Khan, one of Iran's most revered tar players, discovers his beloved instrument to be irreparably damaged. Though he tries, he cannot find one good enough to replace it. Brokenhearted, he takes to bed, renouncing the world and its pleasures. Over the course of the week that follows, as his loved ones gather at his bedside, we are treated to flashbacks and flashforwards that reveal Nasser Ali's entire life and beyond - from his own childhood through his children's futures. As the pieces of his story slowly fall into place, we begin to understand the breadth of his decision to give up life.
