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.

this book will turn your understanding of racism on it's head. I knew very little about apartheid before this book. it completely changed my perceptions on racism, poverty, and black culture. absolutely fantastic, a must-listen.

In 1964 Kathy McKeon was just 19 years old and newly arrived from Ireland when she was hired as the personal assistant to former first lady Jackie Kennedy. The next 13 years of her life were spent in Jackie's service, during which Kathy not only played a crucial role in raising young Caroline and John Jr. but also had a front-row seat to some of the 20th century's most significant events.

Loving and intimate portrait of a family. the story feels real and honest, but definitely told from a place of great respect and love.
