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.

It started out pretty good with the history of South Africa etc. Then there was a natural progression (baby, teens, young adult) etc Then all of a sudden it goes back to his abusive step dad and his mom etc etc It didn't flow properly, which kinda ruined it.
