funny in farsi by firoozeh dumas

Firoozeh Dumas recalls her Iranian family's cultural immersion in 1970s Los Angeles in this collection of small moments centered around their misadventures in America: getting lost at Disneyland, taking advantage of real estate seminars for the free steak dinner, being sent off to summer camp without instructions, and a host of other madcap faux pas. A sweet and lighthearted book and an excellent addition to any memoir unit. Grade 8+
