Reviews
"Heartfelt and hilarious--in any language."--Glamour

"A joyful success."--Newsday

"Remarkable . . . told with wry humor shorn of sentimentality . . . In the end, what sticks with the reader is an exuberant immigrant embrace of America."--San Francisco Chronicle

"What's charming beyond the humor of this memoir is that it remains affectionate even in the weakest, most tenuous moments for the culture. It's the brilliance of true sophistication at work."--Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Often hilarious, always interesting . . . Like the movie My Big Fat Greek Wedding, this book describes with humor the intersection and overlapping of two cultures."--The Providence Journal

"A humorous and introspective chronicle of a life filled with love--of family, country, and heritage."--Jimmy Carter

"Delightfully refreshing."--Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"[Funny in Farsi] brings us closer to discovering what it means to be an American."--San Jose Mercury News
