This is a rather dated, but still charmingly funny farce that takes place in Iran in the 1940's. The petty doings of a minor aristocracy is narrated by the least beloved, adolescent nephew of Dear Uncle Napoleon, the wildly self aggrandizing patriarch of the family. The narrator has fallen hopelessly in love with the daughter of "Dear Uncle".
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it, even though the glimpse into the people and society of the time was compared by someone as like "I Love Lucy" in its accuracy. But it is a farce and as such is completely understandable and interesting. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys reading off the beaten track.

Any additional comments?
I expected something more culturally explicit. It is absolutely an adolescent's book but lacks any real teaching about Iran.
