written by Diana Abu-Jaber, here's what it says on the books flap:

....."Thirty-nine-year old Sirine, never married, lives with a devoted uncle and an adoring dog named King Babar in the Persian and Arab-American community of Los Angeles known as Irangeles. She works as a chef in a Lebanese restaurant, her passions aroused only by cooking--until an unbearably handsome Arabic literature professor starts dropping by for a little home cooking. Falling in love with Hanif brings Sirine's world to a boil--stirring up memories of her parents and questions about her own identity as an Arab American.
