Inhaltsangabe

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.

Trevor Noah is the host of The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, where he gleefully provides America with its nightly dose of serrated satire. He is a light-footed but cutting observer of the relentless absurdities of politics, nationalism, and race - and in particular the craziness of his own young life, which he's lived at the intersections of culture and history.

In his first book, Noah tells his coming-of-age story with his larger-than-life mother during the last gasps of apartheid-era South Africa and the turbulent years that followed. Noah was born illegal - the son of a white Dutch father and a black Xhosa mother, who had to pretend to be his nanny or his father's servant in the brief moments when the family came together. His brilliantly eccentric mother loomed over his life - a comically zealous Christian (they went to church six days a week and three times on Sunday), a savvy hustler who kept food on their table during rough times, and an aggressively involved, if often seriously misguided, parent who set Noah on his bumpy path to stardom.

The stories Noah tells are sometimes dark, occasionally bizarre, frequently tender, and always hilarious - whether he's subsisting on caterpillars during months of extreme poverty or making comically pitiful attempts at teenage romance in a color-obsessed world; whether he's being thrown into jail as the hapless fall guy for a crime he didn't commit or being thrown by his mother from a speeding car driven by murderous gangsters.

    "Great story with a great background."

    This book manages a great description of the South African society while illustrating Trevor's life story in an interesting way. The optimism and insight is enviable."

    "Very insightful"

    I love the Daily Show with Trevor Noah, especially these days and found the stories of his youth in South Africa very insightful and gripping.

    "A must-listen for Trevor Noah fans"

    This is the first time I have ever felt motivated to write a review.
    I found Trevor Noah's report of growing up in South Africa to be an extremely entertaining, eye-opening story. I could hardly "put it down". I know and like Trevor Noah from his American TV show. Listening to this book made me even more of a fan. Definite recommendation from me.
