Review

A substantial collection of staggering personal essays . . . Incisive, funny, and vivid, these true tales are anchored to his portrait of his courageous, rebellious, and religious mother who defied racially restrictive laws to secure an education and a career for herself - and to have a child with a white Swiss/German even though sex between whites and blacks was illegal. . . . Trevor Noah's electrifying memoir sparkles with funny stories . . . and his candid and compassionate essays deepen our perception of the complexities of race, gender, and class - Booklist

A gritty memoir . . . studded with insight and provocative social criticism . . . with flashes of brilliant storytelling and acute observations - Kirkus

Slick, intelligent, blissfully funny - Time Out

A great entertainer - The Times

An immensely likeable performer - warm and upbeat, with an inquiring, irreverent approach to other people's prejudices - Observer

Rare is the comic who can unite a diverse audience in laughter while making potentially divisive comments - Telegraph

He's instantly and effortlessly in control of the room, and his material is insightful and entertaining - Guardian

A handsome, effortlessly, engaging polyglot . . . Fascinating and frequently hilarious . . . For someone so persecuted by language's prejudices and limitations, Noah demons
