Message from Missy Moxley:

We selected Funny in Farsi: A Memoir of Growing Up Iranian in America by Firoozeh Dumas  as our next book.

We will be finishing Midnight Library and will wrap up our discussion on that book next Wednesday (September 15)  and start our first discussion the following Wednesday  (September 22) on Funny in Farsi.

 

Funny in Farsi: A Memoir of Growing Up Iranian in America

by Firoozeh Dumas

In 1972, when she was seven, Firoozeh Dumas and her family moved from Iran to Southern California, arriving with no firsthand knowledge of this country beyond her father's glowing memories of his graduate school years here. More family soon followed, and the clan has been here ever since. Funny in Farsi chronicles the  American journey of Dumas's wonderfully engaging family: her engineer father, a sweetly quixotic dreamer who first sought riches on Bowling for Dollars and in Las Vegas, and later lost his job  during the Iranian revolution; her elegant mother, who never fully mastered English (nor cared to); her  uncle, who combated the effects of American fast food with an army of miraculous American weight-loss gadgets; and Firoozeh herself, who as a girl changed her name to Julie, and who  encountered a second wave of culture shock when she met and married a Frenchman, becoming part of a one-couple melting pot.
