Noel Feldman was born in 1947 in Rhodesia. A mixed-race child classified as 'Coloured' in the lexicon of the day. Born to a violent home and abandoned in a Bulawayo Orphanage as a new-born to be brought up by Catholic nuns. Not knowing his mother, his father or any family. Belonging nowhere. A boy alone.His is an incredible story of courage and fortitude. A bare-knuckle story of a troubled life that would have destroyed most. A mother lost - then found - and lost again. A father - never found and never looked for.A life of optimism and gratitude for being alive. A life not defined by a tragic start but a life to give us heart. And you can meet him, every day, at the famous Froggy Farm kiosk in beautiful Juliasdale, Zimbabwe, where he now lives and laughs and will bring something to your life as you buy your blueberries from him. If you are lucky and he is in the mood, he might give you his famous Ian Smith impersonation!One of the multitude who make their way through an unforgiving world - one of the voiceless. Until now.

Noel's Story is a compelling read. Far more than yet another volume of Rhodesiana, Dr Mansfield's biography brings out the extraordinary life of Noel Feldman. Noel's struggle to find his mother and to belong, in an age and a country where being a mixed-race "Coloured" often meant being unwanted, still resonates. Noel's charm, his lust for life, and his fighting spirit, crackle through the pages. Noel's Story hums with the text and texture of life; and what a life it is, ekse! -- Dr Knox Chitiyo: Associate Fellow Africa programme, Chatham House. A stunning and heart-breaking, yet empowering experience of Noel. It speaks to the core of humankind. I fell in love with it. -- Lloyd Nyikadzino: Director Zimbabwe Theatre Academy
