It's a sad coincidence that I reviewed AN IRANIAN METAMORPHOSIS by Mana Neyestani on a day people were murdered over free speech in France. This graphic memoir, about an Iranian cartoonist being jailed, is absolutely worth the read. http://skrishnasbooks.com/2015/01/book-review-iranian-metamorphosis-mana-neyestani.html
