One of the comedy world's fastest-rising stars tells his wild coming of age story during the twilight of apartheid in South Africa and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. Noah provides something deeper than traditional memoirists: powerfully funny observations about how farcical political and social systems play out in our lives.

I've been a fan of Trevor Noah's comedy for sometime. This only solidified my respect and admiration for him. He has a way of bringing levity to his stories and experiences growing up in poverty, oppression, and abuse. Through his storytelling you can glean that he's gotten that from his mother.
I really appreciated the light he shine on the matriarch of his family.
I also enjoyed that the book was performed by him.
