Talk: No Land's Man

A mix of humorous stories, heartfelt observations, and misfit mayhem, No Land’s Man is a quintessentially American story—a laugh-out-loud account of a second-generation immigrant’s search for meaning and identity in an increasingly confusing world. In No Land’s Man, Aasif Mandvi reveals the many, and often contradictory, layers of identity that make up who he has become today. From boarding school bullies branding him “Curry Pot” and casting directors passing him over for not being “Indian” enough, to reading the Koran at a bible study group during college, and developing a character that came to eclipse his own as a correspondent on The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, his life has become his source of both confusion and inspiration.
