compelling new memoir By turns alarming, sad and funny, Trevor Noahs book provides a harrowing look, through the prism of Mr Noahs family, at life in South Africa under apartheid In the end, Born a Crime is not just an unnerving account of growing up in South Africa under apartheid, but a love letter to the authors remarkable mother.Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times An unforgettable memoir ParadeYoud be hard pressed to find a comics origin story better than the one Trevor Noah serves up in Born a Crime He developed his aptitude for witty truth telling and every hardscrabble memory of helping his mother scrape together money for food, gas, school fees, and rent, or barely surviving the temper of his stepfather, Abel, reveals the anxious wellsprings of the comedians ambition and success If there is harvest in spite of blight, the saying goes, one does not credit the blight but Noah does manage to wring brilliant comedy from it O The Oprah Magazine What makes Born a Crime such a soul nourishing pleasure, even with all its darker edges and perilous turns, is reading Noah recount in brisk, warmly conversational prose how he learned to negotiate his way through the bullying and ostracism What also helped was having a mother like Patricia Nombuyiselo Noah Consider Born a Crime another such gift to herand an enormous gift to the rest of us USA Today Noah thrives with the help of his astonishingly fearless mother Their fierce bond makes this story soar People This isn t your average comic writes a memoir Its a unique look at a man who is a product of his cultureand a nuanced look at a part of the world whose people have known dark times easily pushed aside Refinery29 Noahs memoir is extraordinary essential reading on every level Its hard to imagine anyone else doing a finer job of it The Seattle TimesPowerful prose told through stories and vignettes that are sharply observed, deftly conveyed and consistently candid Growing organically from them is an affecting investigation of identity, ethnicity, language, masculinity, nationality and, most of all, humanityall issues that the election of Donald Trump in the United States shows are foremost in minds and hearts everywhere What the reader gleans are the insights that made Noah the thoughtful, observant, empathic man who wrote Born a Crime Here is a level headed man, forged by remarkable and shocking life incidents, who is quietly determined and who knows where home and the heart lie Would this unique story have been published had it been about someone not a celebrity of the planet Possibly not, and to the detriment of potential readers, because this is a warm and very human story of the type that we will need to survive the Trump presidencys imminent freezing of humane values Mail Guardian South Africa Noahs story of survivingand thrivingis mind blowing Cosmopolitan A gifted storyteller, able to deftly lace his poignant tales with amusing irony Entertainment Weekly Noah has a real tale to tell, and he tells it well Among the many virtues of Born a Crime is a frank and telling portrait of life in South Africa during the 1980s and 90s Born a Crime offers Americans a second introduction to Trevor Noah, and he makes a real impression Newsday An affecting memoir, Born a Crime is a love letter to his mother The Washington PostWitty and revealing Noahs story is the story of modern South Africa though he enjoyed some privileges of the regions slow Westernization, his formative years were shaped by poverty, injustice, and violence Noah is quick with a disarming joke, and he skillfully integrates the parallel narratives via interstitial asides between chapters Perhaps the most harrowing tales are those of his abusive stepfather, which form the books final act and which Noah cleverly foreshadows throughout earlier chapters , but equally prominent are the laugh out loud yarns about going to the prom, and the differences between White Church and Black Church Publishers Weekly starred review A substantial collection of staggering personal essays Incisive, funny, and vivid, these true tales are anchored to his portrait of his courageous, rebellious, and religious mother who defied racially restrictive laws to secure an education and a career for herselfand to have a child with a white Swiss German even though sex between whites and blacks was illegal
