Original book title: Kalla det vad fan du vill
Author: Marjaneh Bakhtiari

Language: Swedish

This book is funny, depressing and insightful all at the same time. In the center of this book is the family Irandoust. They have left Iran for Sweden and the meeting with the new country and its people is not always painless, but with persistence and a positive attitude they learn more about themselves and the new culture.

I read this book in two days! It is a well written, amusing and brilliant page turner. It’s an easy read and Marjaneh Bakhtiari juggles masterly with all the silly stereotypes and tells a story within a story. I don’t understand why I haven’t read this book earlier!

This book made me interested and curious about her other novels!
