Marzi is a memoir of growing up in communist Poland, with its hardships and political unrest. It's also the story of a little girl's family and friends, and the bright spots that keep them going. It's not overtly focused on the political, but Marzi grows into understanding what's going on around her. Especially when her father becomes active in the struggle for liberation. Even if you're not interested in history, though, this is an excellent memoir. Sowa was willing to lay many things bare, such as her mother's dysfunction and cruelty. It's not sensationalistic, but it's sobering. But in many ways her family was one of the lucky ones, finding ways to survive and enjoy parts of their lives even during hardship. This one stayed with me for a long while after I turned the last page.

The stories didn't interest me, the drawings were childish, and it didn't remind me of the Poland I visited. This is no "Persepolis"!
