    No Land s Man is one of those books that can take you through the emotional gamut but still leave you laughing This is such a compelling story for anyone who has ever felt out of place From his frankly disturbing days in a British boarding school to his delightful tenure on the Daily Show Mandvi just sort of opens up a vein and bleeds onto the page His commentary on race, class, and society is spot on And there were sections where I literally laughed out loud I only meant to read a ch No Land s Man is one of those books that can take you through the emotional gamut but still leave you laughing This is such a compelling sto...

    Hmm. I m not quite sure what I thought about this book It was witty, I got to know Aasifthrough his stories But the stories themselves, and the chronological ordering of the book was jarring to me Perhaps because I m such a Daily Show fan I was hoping forjuicy details about the show However That s exactly what this book wasn t, Jon Stewart wasn t mentioned until the last few pages This book wasa get to know Aasif , including his accomplishments, failures, beatings becau Hmm.

    Aasif Mandvi was best known to me as a correspondent on the Daily Show He is also the author star of a well reviewed one man show about the challenges of being the son of roving Muslim immigrants who passed their family through the UK before striking out for America This book is well written, but it was quite different from what I was expecting Mandvi s writing style here does not mirror the punchy, quick pace of his Daily Show work but instead consists of longer form, personal essays which a Aasif Mandvi was best known to me as a correspondent on the Daily Show He is also the author star of a well reviewed one man show about the challenges of being the son of roving Muslim immigrants who passed their family through the UK before striking out for America This book is well written, but it was quite different from what I was expecting Mandvi s writing style here does not mirror the punchy, quick pace of h...

    Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography cclapcenter.com I am the original author of this essay, as well as the owner of CCLaP it is not being reprinted illegally There s not a lot to say about Aasif Mandvi s short and sharp memoir No Land s Man, but that doesn t mean it s not worth reading in fact, I found this one of thedelightful short books I ve read in recent months, a disarming and always humorous look at one Indian immigrant s journey from the subconti Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography cclapcenter.com I am the o...

    Mandvi s laugh out loud funny introspection on experiencing life through Muslim, British, and American culture is full of heart and humility I foundaffinity in No Land s Man than I had originally anticipated, having grown up as an Asian American myself, torn between both American and Chinese culture in an all white community, much like Mandvi grappled with growing up Muslim in an all boys British boarding school Like Mandvi, though he could look the part of a Muslim, it only felt l...

    Unexpectedly lovely I picked this up thinking I d be getting a breezy funny man s take on life, chock full of laugh out loud anecdotes from the Daily Show set What I got instead was a thoughtful, poignant, multi dimensional personal memoir that tells Mandvi s story of growing up as a South Asian in the UK, dreaming of being an actor, pursuing his craft across the Atlantic, finding his way, improbably, to the Daily S...

    This book was a recommendation of NPR, and I was interested in reading it because of his appearances on the Daily Show Yes, I drank the Kool aid, and as a Muslim, I wasn t looking for perfection, but I was hoping for someone who at least respected the religion While it was ok that this book was not an inspiring tale of a man t...

    Mandvi is a good storyteller and reasonably funny the urine drinking story being the only bit that might make you laugh out loud He doesn t really set out to be comedian, though, and instead focuses on the alienation he s felt as a Muslim Indian in England, and and Indian Muslim English immigrant in the US The anecdotes are very entertaining, but also serious without being overly sentimental Things get a little serious toward the very end, but overall it is a light, enjoyable, and quick rea Mandvi is a good storyteller and reasonably funny the urine drinking story being the only bit that might make you laugh out loud He doesn t really set out to be comedian, though, and instead focuses on the alienation he s felt as ...

    I enjoyed the book it was a quick read that explores Mandvi s childhood and experiences growing up in Britain and the U.S I ve always enjoyed Aasif Mandvi on The Daily Show, which is why I wanted to read this book The book has Mandvi s dry humor throughout, even especially when experiencing pivotal life moments as a perceived outsider Mandvi gives insight into the limited opportunities for actors who are not caucasian to portray characters with any depth or substance I r...
