Summary:

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.
