Wonderful, colorful stories from Mr. Noah's childhood, not just about the insidious institution of apartheid but about its democratic aftermath; family and particularly, his mother's fierce love; being different because he was "colored" and therefore neither black nor white (his mother a Black African, his father a Swiss-German ex-pat), and, under the apartheid regime, a "crime" because he was the product of an illegal union; religion; and rebellion.
