Persepolis Chapter 20

By Marjane Satrapi

Chapter 20

The Soup [Note: This is the beginning of Persepolis 2]

  • It's November 1984 and Marjane is in Austria in a boarding house with nuns. Wait, what? Wasn't she staying with Zozo, a friend of her mom's?
  • Quick flashback: She was, but Zozo fought with her husband a lot and ended up kicking Marjane out.
  • She kind of likes her independence at the boarding house, though, and she tries to make friends with her roommate, Lucia, even though they don't speak the same language.
