Say Wha?

persepolis

Via one of my favorite literary blogs, Bookslut, is a link to this article about a Hampstead, N.H. library adding graphic novels to their adult section:

Typically, graphic novels are marketed at people who have trouble reading. “For struggling readers, who don’t understand foreshadowing and literary concepts and the logical flow of a narrative, seeing words and pictures can help,” he said.

Are you kidding me?  Yeah, that’s why I read Persepolis, because I need the pretty pictures to help me understand foreshadowing and narrative.
