I loved Firoozeh’s first book, Funny in Farsi: A Memoir of Growing up Iranian in America, so it made perfect sense to purchase her follow-up publication. If you don’t like mass market fiction but want something light to read while traveling or at the beach, I’d definitely recommend this one. The short autobiographical chapters can be dipped into at any time without having to worry about keeping track of a complicated plot or a large cast of characters. I laughed out loud countless times and nearly cried at one point. I don’t usually choose books that deal with family relationships, but the anecdotes the author shares are easy to identify with and exceptionally entertaining. And you’ll learn about Iranian culture to boot!
