Funny in Farsi: A Memoir of Growing Up Iranian in America by Firoozeh Dumas
The author and her family moved to the US from Iran when she was seven years old. Each chapter tells a funny story about their adjustment. We get to know her family and what it was like for them to move here.
Each of the chapters could stand alone as its own essay, so this is a good book to pick up every once in awhile and read a chapter. I wish that it felt more cohesive, but the stories were funny. I think I would have liked at least a dash of more seriousness though when it came to their transition here because it wasn't all fun.
