Reviews tagging Forced institutionalization
grei's review against another edition
I don't know a better way to describe this book, it is absolutely an amazing read that defies categorization, other than to say it is the story of Trevor Noah growing up as the son of a black mother and white father during apartheid, when it was illegal to have such a child.
Graphic: Domestic abuse, Emotional abuse, Excrement, Gun violence, Medical content, Medical trauma, Racism, Toxic relationship, and Violence
Moderate: Addiction, Alcoholism, Domestic abuse, Emotional abuse, Genocide, Grief, Gun violence, Hate crime, Medical trauma, Medical content, Misogyny, Police brutality, Racial slurs, Racism, Violence, and Xenophobia
Minor: Blood, Bullying, Cursing, Death, Forced institutionalization, Slavery, and ViolenceIf you want to skip the part about excrement, once Trevor starts talking about needing to go to the bathroom just skip to the end of the chapter. The last few paragraphs provide enough context and a good punchline for you to skip all the graphic detail and embarrassment of it.
