    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

    Entertaining, enlightening, enjoyble and genuinely funny as Firoozeh Dumas one again leads us through trails of an Iranian and French family's life in America. Pieces of this adorable read could be the account of any American with children...tough days! The red spread story is very typical of a mother's love and desire to please, while the food stories regal us with visions of lamb's head...all entertaining and fun! Looking forward to her sequel.

    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, warm hearted, easy read!"
    Overall

    I loved this book! It was so right on track with how she and family were treated as Iranians during the various crisis in America in the '70's. This colorful and honest description of daily life captured the essence of being an Iranian immigrant in America. It worked magic in helping me understand "the other side". When the book was finished I felt like I knew Firoozzeh and her family and was just waiting to be invited for dinner. I look forward her next read with relish. Great read, highly recommended...get ready to laugh out loud! Peggy Honeysuckle
