-Jim Gaffigan, author of Dad Is Fat and Food: A Love Story
"highly entertaining and engaging"
"a warm and explosively funny book"
- The New York Times
"Mandvi's book 'No Land's Man' is a collection of humorous essays that explore his myriad identities: Indian, Muslim, British, and American...The book is a lighthearted but heartfelt portrait of Mandvi's childhood and his struggles to come to terms with his rather complicated life."
-The Boston Globe
"9.3 out of 10. A fast and entertaining read that should take most people no more than a day or two to finish, this comes strongly recommended to both comedy fans and those interested in first-hand looks at the American immigration experience, as well as anyone else looking for a sweet, funny story about nerdom and outsider culture."
-Chicago Center for Literature and Photography
"With a mixture of humor and heart, Mandvi's story is one that will resonate with anyone who has ever wanted to find their place in their world, to find where they fit in with the rest of the human race. It doesn't matter if you are part of the minority or majority, whether you're a native or foreign-born, wanting to belong is something most of us can relate to."
