Friday Review - Lucky

This week Lauren read Embroideries by Marjane Satrapi:
"Satrapi's latest book is about the sex lives of Iranian women. Told over tea, a group of women tell stories of their sexual lives. The stories are from women of all ages; grandmother, aunt, daughter and young friends. I found the book very entertaining, laughing at every page. The illustrations are very nice and it feels as though you are sitting to tea with the women.

Worth reading just to find out how the book got it's title."


Benn read Centerfield by Nick Jeffrey:
"Nick mines his childhood for this comic dealing with his feelings for sports and his father who comes down with cancer. With great illustration, a touching narrative, and a terrific eye for composition, Nick's comic creates both a loving testimony to a dead father and a pointed indictment of everything that's wrong with professional sports. A must for anyone who's ever been stuck playing right field (even a former firstbasemen like me can relate)."
