So many good, thought provoking things about this book. I have been reading more bios (often of comedians for whatever reason) and although they are often enjoyable they are usually pretty light reads. This, however, had some depth, history, and humor to it.
4⭐️ This book is many things at once: a biography, a love letter to his mother, commentary on race and identity, and history lesson. All these heavy subjects are interweaved with humor. Noah‘s perspective as an African who went through Apartheid and his experiences with race in America are interesting and shed light on many similarities and some differences in the black experience in South Africa and America. This book makes you laugh and think.
