Another Great Book!!

Monday, December 22, 2008

After reading two heart wrenching books, I decided I needed some humor in my life! Funny in Farsi (written by Firoozeh Dumas) is the story of an Iranian girl that moves to the US with her family and eventually stays here and raises a family. Between the descriptions of Persian customs, language barrier problems and stories of earthquakes and how to handle your mother-in-law when it comes to her fine china, I was laughing hysterically! I can so relate to this book having live in a foreign country, but even if you haven't had foreign travel experience you will be able to relate! I am hoping our library has Firoozeh's second book, Laughing without an Accent. I can't wait to read it!
