Born a Crime – Stories from a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah
This is the first book I’ve read about life during apartheid and the days that followed freedom. A brave, courageous, eye-opening book about Noah’s childhood, his mom, his family and growing up as a mixed race person in South Africa. Not only that, being born a crime, as he is the son of a Swiss father and a black Xhosa mother. Which at the time was punishable by five years in prison. Also the story of unconditional and unconventional love, family, friendships, and Noah’s coming of age. Delivered with fearless honesty. I highly recommend this one.
