An engaging look at cross-cultural confusion and funny family stories.

Dumas first came to the US from Iran in 1972 as a young child. Her stories come across as light-hearted, funny, even gentle, and provide a charming yet realistic portrait of her family. It's also interesting and thought provoking to hear about the differences in her experiences of the US before and after the Iranian Revolution. An enjoyable way to learn about the immigrant experience from a personal perspective.
