By Trevor Noah. Born A Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood is the story of Trevor Noah's unlikely path from apartheid South Africa to the desk of The Daily Show that began with a criminal act--his birth. Trevor was born to a white Swiss father and a Black Xhosa mother at a time when such a union was punishable by five years in prison plus seizure of any offspring for relocation to another home with persons resembling the child's complexion. TN (2017), English, 304 pages.

Living proof of his parents' indiscretion and kept mostly indoors for the earliest years of his life, bound by the extreme and often absurd measures his mother took to hide him from a government that could, at any moment, steal him away, Trevor was finally liberated by the end of South Africa's tyrannical white rule after a centuries-long struggle.

The stories collected here are by turns hilarious, dramatic, and deeply affecting. Whether subsisting on caterpillars for dinner during hard times, being thrown from a moving car during an attempted kidnapping, or just trying to survive the life-and-death pitfalls of dating in high school, Trevor illuminates his curious world with an incisive wit and unflinching honesty. His stories weave together to form a moving and searingly funny portrait of a boy making his way through a damaged world in a dangerous time, armed only with a keen sense of humor and a mother's unconventional, unconditional love.
