Reviews

"A hilarious and personal take on the complexities of being non-white in America today. This book makes racial politics a bit easier to swallow."--Reza Aslan, bestselling author of No god but God and Zealot
"Apparently, Negin did not spend her childhood in the Irish countryside. She was never a beat jazz innovator, and her marriage to Douglas Fairbanks was unconsummated. This long overdue book not only 'sets the record straight' but also improves the whole structure of society. I thank Ms. Farsad for that. You should do the same."--Janeane Garofalo, Comedian
"Negin Farsad whips out some smart racial politics . . . with a side of fart jokes and the result is a hilarious and pungent book."--Aasif Mandv, Daily Show correspondent, actor and author of No Land's Man
"Well-written [and] disarmingly funny."--New Boston Post
"This book is more than funny-it's on David Sedaris-level first-class perfect fucking hilarious funny. I laughed so hard, I made a spectacle of myself."--Julia Sweeney, Comedian, Writer, and former SNL cast member
"Farsad's fresh and funny voice is perfect for presenting tactics to fight anti-Muslim sentiment in the U.S., and her work is intriguing and enjoyable to read."--Publisher's Weekly
"How to Make White People Laugh will help answer some of the questions people have been too scared to ask. And get you laughing."--Refinery29
"Hilarious and groundbreaking...Farsad carves out a new space to talk about cultural and political identity."--BookWitty.com
