Funny in Farsi : A Memoir of Growing Up Iranian in America by Firoozeh Dumas

Each chapter represents a chunk of the author's life,as she grows up in America. A really amusing account, exploring the cultural differences between Iran & America. The outline that is given of immigrants arriving in another country, working hard to support other family members to migrate is a reflection of many groups of immigrants. (My own family did this from Italy to the UK). The Values of the extended family, whilst sharing the highs and lows of each others lives.
