The Awkward Thoughts of W. Kamau Bell
The Awkward Thoughts of W. Kamau Bell Tales of A 6' 4", African-American, Heterosexual, Cisgender, Left-leaning, Asthmatic, Black and Proud Blerd, Mama's Boy, Dad, and Stand-up Comedian By Bell, W. Kamau Book - 2017

I'm going to declare this as one of the most important books of 2017. W. Kamau Bell has a gift for looking at difficult topics from many angles, holding your attention to the painful or what he would call awkward parts, and finding humor and sometimes even resolution in the many predicaments happening across the country. Fans of his work will enjoy the details about his work in comedy in tv, readers interested in the life of a thoughtful comedian negotiating work/family life will appreciate his honesty, and anyone who wants to engage with a resonant discussion about race in America in 2017 will find important facets in this book.
