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 loved this book I couldn't put it down. I was caught up between the past and the present and found myself in years for all involved. Great book, thank you Lisa Wingate.
