From the back cover: "In Diana Abu-Jaber's first novel, a small, poor-white community in upstate New York becomes home to the transplanted Jordanian family of Matussem Ramoud: his grown daughters, Jemorah and Melvina; his sister Fatima; and her husband Zaeed. The widower Matusem loves American jazz, kitschy lawn ornaments, and, of course, his daughters. Fatima is obsessed with seeing her neices married - Jemorah is nearly thirty! Supernurse Melvina is firmly committed to her work, but Jemorah is ambivalent about her identity and role. Is she Arab? Is she American? Should she marry, and, if so, whom?
This is a hillarious, and, at the same time, very poignant story. I recommend it.
It is going into my "Two Worlds" virtual bookbox.

This book has languished on Mt. TBR for far too long - sending it to a BCer as part of the 2016 Wishlist Challenge. Enjoy!
