Yes, My Accent Is Real: And Some Other Things I Haven't Told You

Yes, My Accent Is Real: And Some Other Things I Haven't Told You - Kunal Nayyar
This is not a memoir. I’m not a president, or an astronaut, or a Kardashian. This is a collection of stories from my life.
You guys, it’s Raj from The Big Bang Theory!

This book gives wonderful insight into Raj, that is to say the man behind Raj… That is to say Kunal Nayyar… Did you know that Raj was originally written as David Koothrappali?

Aaaaanyway. As Kunal informs us from the outset; this is not a memoir. He’s not old enough for it to be a true memoir, but he has led a very interesting life, and we are offered entertaining snippets of misadventures, discoveries, and friendships he has made along the way.
