It’s Trevor Noah: Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood (Adapted for Young Readers) by Trevor Noah
April 9th 2019
Trevor Noah, host of the Daily Show, recounts his childhood growing up in South Africa, shortly after the end of Apartheid. He was born of a black mother and white father, which was an illegal relationship under Apartheid. He grows up not really fitting in anywhere. With his usual combination of humor and deep insight into humanity’s senseless behavior, Noah gives an uncomfortable piece of history a human face.
