Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood

Why do you think Western pop culture has such an influence on Marjane and kids her age?

Why are she and her family willing to take such risks to have tapes, posters, etc? (How might your identiy as an American make you baised here?)

Marjane is like many teenage girls around the world. She likes music and pop culture. She finds them "cool" and exciting. Teens are learning to express their identities and Western pop culture allows for a lot of choice. I don't think one has to be American to appreciate this. Pop culture is , in various forms, all over the world. During the time American pop culture happened to be a big cultural export.
