by | Read by Firoozeh Dumas

Biography & Memoir • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

When she was in second grade, the author moved to Whittier, California, a place where no one could pronounce her name and she could speak no English aside from reciting colors. Relying on her father’s questionable grasp of English, the family steered clear of such foods as hot dogs, catfish, hush puppies, and mud pie. By junior high, she had learned to fit in and enjoy her life in America. Then the Iranian Revolution broke out. Narrating her own frequently hilarious and often heartwarming tale of growing up in America, Dumas speaks in a lively and very human style that helps us laugh at our foibles and relish our diversity.
