Yes, My Accent is Real is the story of the funny man who plays Raj, Kunal Nayyar. He breaks his life down into little essays, so it's not quite a memoir, but more of a "Sit down and I'll tell you a few stories" book. I listened to the audiobook, read by Kunal, and that's exactly how it felt.
Within the pages (or as you listen to Kunal read) you will find out:
- how he became a teenage badminton champion
- why he felt like Robocop in his parents home
- what his first year in America was like as a college freshman studying business
- why Romeo and Juliet and Cabaret are still sore spots
- how he met and fell in love with his wife Neha
...and of course, how he landed his spot as Raj on The Big Bang Theory.
Spoiler: Sadly, he isn't really an astrophysicist.
