About the Author

Kunal Nayyar was born in London and raised in New Delhi, India. He first came to the United States in 1999 to pursue a bachelor's degree in business administration and went on to receive an MFA in acting from Temple University. Playing the character of Raj on The Big Bang Theory, he has been part of the ensemble since the show debuted in 2007. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Neha.


"Hilarious and inspiring."--Entertainment Weekly
"Employing a charming, self-deprecating tone, [Nayyar] writes that he's too young for a memoir, so these anecdotes are merely stories from his life - humorous, insightful, heartfelt, and heartwarming autobiographical essays."--Booklist
"The author's charming style will keep readers invested, while the portrait of his family is beguiling in its sweetness and sincerity. A must for those who enjoyed Mindy Kaling's Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? or Judd Apatow's Sick in the Head."--Library Journal
"An international tale of fame and fortune, Yes, My Accent is Real could be The Big Bang Theory drug you're aching for."--Flavorpill
"Anyone who has ever had an awkward childhoodor teenage moment will be able to relate to the situations Kunal went through, and this is one of those rare not-a-memoirs which is honest, and shows theauthor's own flaws. Rather than asking 'why me, ' Kunal owns his mistakesand learns from them, which is rather refreshing."
