Marzi: A memoir, by Marzena Sowa

Second frame of third chapter:

An autobiographical narrative about a young girl growing up in the last decade of Communist Poland - very vivid on the intersection of politics, religion, family, friends and school, and perhaps an honest preservation of a world that has now disappeared, changed mainly (but not entirely) for the better.

This was my top unread comics book in English. Next up is the Moomin collection by Lars and Tove Jansson.
