    In the best-selling memoir Funny in Farsi, Firoozeh Dumas recounted her adventures growing up Iranian American in Southern California. Now she again mines her rich Persian heritage in Laughing Without an Accent, sharing stories both tender and humorous on being a citizen of the world, on her well-meaning family, and on amusing cultural conundrums, all told with insights into the universality of the human condition. (Hint: It may have to do with brushing and flossing daily.)

    Overall

    Listening to Laughing Without an Accent; by far was one of my most pleasurable experiences. I was constantly mesmerized by author's undaunting wit; her colorful descriptions of the events; and her genius selections of the themes. I think Firoozeh stories bring humor and joy to not only Iranian-Americans but also all the immigrants to this wonderful land. I can not wait to listen to her other book Funny in Farsi

    Story

    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.

    "Funny in Farsi is funny indeed!"
    Overall

    I think Firoozeh has a special talent with language and she uses it to illustrate any situation in the funniest way. I could not stop laughing most of the time listening to her stories delivering them in her charming voice. I laughed until I cried when she was explaining how her name was mispronounced from Firoozeh Dumas to Fritzy Dumbass. Humor is not the only ingredient of the book. Firoozeh describes the beauties of the Persian culture and the strengths of Persian families very diligently. She even touches some significant points in Iran history and politics with her personal and family stories.
