Funny In Farsi by Firoozeh Dumas

farsiAges 18+

From author Firoozeh Dumas comes a heartfelt, hilarious memoir of her life as an Iranian immigrant in America. The year is 1972, and seven-year-old Dumas has no knowledge of America other than what her father tells her from his graduate school years in the U.S. The book describes each of her quirky family members: her fashionable mother who never cared to master the English language, her uncle who curses the fast food industry of America, and  her father who became rich in Vegas only to lose his job afterward. Each story seems to be funnier than the last. I recommend this to anyone who loves learning about other cultures and appreciates a good laugh while doing so.

Stephanie Plum is a cool chick. She has a hamster named Rex. A cop boyfriend named Moretti. And a cousin named Vinnie. She normally works for said cousin as a bail bondsman, but this time she’s moonlighting for her friend Carlos Manoso, AKA Ranger. The FTA (failure to appear) is Jimmy Poletti, a used car salesman who sells cars full of contraband. Will Stephanie catch him before it’s too late? This book is Janet Evanovich’s twenty-first installment of the Stephanie Plum series. It’s not your average mystery because it’s funny and not always about gruesome murders…it’s about the chase. Evanovich never disappoints!
