No Land's Man: A Perilous Journey through Romance, Islam, and Brunch

If you’re an Indo-Muslim-British-American actor who has spent more time in bars than mosques over the past few decades, turns out it's a little tough to explain who you are or where you are from. In No Land’s Man Aasif Mandvi explores this and other conundrums through stories about his family, ambition, desire, and culture that range from dealing with his brunch-obsessed father, to being a high-school-age Michael Jackson impersonator, to joining a Bible study group in order to seduce a nice Christian girl, to improbably becoming America’s favorite Muslim/Indian/Arab/Brown/Doctor correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

This is a book filled with passion, discovery, and humor. Mandvi hilariously and poignantly describes a journey that will resonate with anyone who has had to navigate his or her way in the murky space between lands. Or anyone who really loves brunch.

I took this on a plane ride with me and was howling and laughing for 3 hours. Those around me kept asking me what I was reading and I showed them the cover. I thought this was an easy read with lots of humor and some insight to the immigrant experience as well as a boy growing up in general dealing with bullies and manhood. It was a great read and I would recommend this to anyone who tires of something too long and too drawn out. LAUGHED OUT LOUD
