A Culture Clash with Comedy: "The Iranican Dream"

We have all heard of the American Dream, but what is the Iranican Dream? A new novel by Siamack Baniameri seeks to answer this question by depicting life from the perspective of an Iranian-American man in a post 9/11 America-- with a side-splitting twist!

"The Iranican Dream" is a hilarious journey inside the mind of a man whose world is comprised of lavish encounters with bizarre characters in some of the most outlandish circumstances. Baniameri brings to the spotlight a fresh breed of Middle Eastern immigrant in America who inadvertently gets himself in comical situations by constantly plotting to sabotage his ex-wife's relationships, preventing his teenage daughter from dating boys, pestering women to go out with him, and manipulating his best friend to participate in his tedious schemes.

Siamack Baniameri, a militant nudist Buddhist and according to the Playgirl magazine "the sexiest Middle Eastern man alive since Yasser Arafat," has devoted his entire life to organizing support groups for men with hideous circumcisions. He also heads a nonprofit organization called, "Middle Eastern men for better body hair removal products." Baniameri has traveled the world looking for the answer to the most fundamental question asked by every man: where the heck is the remote control?

"The Iranican Dream: Inside the Mind of a Middle Eastern-American Man" is available in softcover (ISBN 1-58939-677-4) from, and Barnes and The book can also be ordered from most bookstores around the United States and the United Kingdom. More information about the book can be found at
