Chicken with Plums - Marjane Satrapi

Marjane Satrapi follows her Persepolis volumes with another beautiful chapter of her family’s history.  Chicken With Plums (Pantheon, $12.95) tells the story of Satrapi’s great uncle, the celebrated Iranian musician, Nasser Ali Khan.  When his beloved tar is damaged beyond repair, Khan decides he’d rather die than take up a lesser instrument.  Satrapi’s sparse narration and distinctive black-and-white illustration guide us through his final weeks.  Over those seven days, Khan looks back on a life filled with passion and regret, fixating on lost loves, family legacies, and favorite dishes.
