Laughing Without an Accent

Posted by nliakos on April 1, 2012

by Firoozah Dumas (Villard 2008)

I was looking for Funny in Farsi, which was Dumas’ first book, but it was out; so I settled for this one instead. It was good; it was funny. Dumas was born in Iran and emigrated to the U.S. when she was quite young.  She writes about her experiences as an Iranian in California, both before and after the Iranian hostage crisis. She writes about going to college (excruciating), and meeting her husband, who is French, and about the interaction between him and her parents. I enjoyed reading the book a lot, but now, three books later, find I can’t remember much in particular about it! (Then again, that is why I started this blog, so I shouldn’t blame Dumas.)

I’d still like to read Funny in Farsi!
