Funny in Farsi
Author: Firoozeh Dumas
In 1972, when she was seven, Firoozeh Dumas and her family moved from Iran to Southern California, arriving with no firsthand knowledge of this country beyond her father’s glowing memories of his graduate school years here. More family soon followed, and the clan has been here ever since. In a series of deftly drawn scenes, traditions, and American culture. Above all, this is an unforgettable story of identity, discovery and the power of family love. It is a book that will leave us all laughing — without an accent.
