Funny in Farsi by Firoozeh Dumas
Funny in Farsi is Firoozeh Dumas’s autobiographical account of growing up Iranian in America. Dumas tells stories of her family’s immigration to the US in the 1970s.
Why I liked it:
True to the title, this book is funny. I particularly like the way Dumas casts her family. We really get to know them and enjoy their unique personalities.
