The full title of this book by W. Kamau Bell is super long: 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.
Whew! That’s a lot of words.
I can’t remember where I first heard about this book. I had never heard of Bell before, but some of the members of my book group had read and raved about this book. He was also on Nerdette’s podcast and I happened to listen to the episode in which he talked about this book and various things he likes to geek out about. He was a lot of fun to listen to and seemed like a cool person, so I requested the audiobook from my library. Bell narrates it himself and he was pretty great to listen to.
