              Born A Crime, Trevor Noah's brilliant memoir of his South African childhood was a phenomenon. It was in the New York Times top ten for months and has been a huge bestseller all round the world. It won several prizes including the Thurber Prize for comic writing. This is the eager...ly awaited next installment of his incredible story. 19 year-old Trevor leaves home and promptly manages to fall foul of the local mafia who want to kill him. His love life is a complete disaster; his jobs full of mistakes and missteps -- he even ends up in prison -- yet somehow he generally manages to come out on top. The story of the night where he gets the job of taking all the contestants for Miss Universe out on the town and (of course) it all goes horribly wrong is particularly unforgettable. Like Born a Crime this is far more than a must-read memoir, painting a brilliant and moving portrait of a country in change.

Picked out as a must-read by everyone from Oprah Winfrey to Bill Gates, it has been a huge bestseller all round the world and won several prizes including the Thurber Prize for comic wri...ting. This is the eagerly awaited next installment of his incredible story. 19 year-old Trevor leaves home and promptly manages to fall foul of the local mafia.

Like Born a Crime this is far more than a compelling memoir -- it is also the irreverent story of South Africa's own coming of age.

              One of the comedy world's fastest-rising stars tells his wild coming-of-age story during the twilight of apartheid in South Africa and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. Noah provides something deeper than traditional memoirists: powerfully funny observations about how... farcical political and social systems play out in our lives.Trevor Noah is the host of The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, where he gleefully provides America with its nightly dose of serrated satire. He is a light-footed but cutting observer of the relentless absurdities of politics, nationalism, and race - and in particular the craziness of his own young life, which he's lived at the intersections of culture and history.In his first book, Noah tells his coming-of-age story with his larger-than-life mother during the last gasps of apartheid-era South Africa and the turbulent years that followed. Noah was born illegal - the son of a white Dutch father and a black Xhosa mother, who had to pretend to be his nanny or his father's servant in the brief moments when the family came together. His brilliantly eccentric mother loomed over his life - a comically zealous Christian (they went to church six days a week and three times on Sunday), a savvy hustler who kept food on their table during rough times, and an aggressively involved, if often seriously misguided, parent who set Noah on his bumpy path to stardom.The stories Noah tells are sometimes dark, occasionally bizarre, frequently tender, and always hilarious - whether he's subsisting on caterpillars during months of extreme poverty or making comically pitiful attempts at teenage romance in a color-obsessed world; whether he's being thrown into jail as the hapless fall guy for a crime he didn't commit or being thrown by his mother from a speeding car driven by murderous gangsters.

Trevor naci de un padre suizo blanco y una madre Xhosa negra, en una poca de la historia sudafricana en que tal uni n era castigada con cinco a os de prisi n.

              The compelling, inspiring, and comically sublime story of a young man s coming-of-age, set during the twilight of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed Trevor Noah is one of the comedy world s brightest new voices, a light-footed but sharp-minded observer of ...the absurdities of politics, race, and identity, sharing jokes and insights drawn from the wealth of experience acquired in his relatively young life. As host of The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, he provides viewers in America and around the globe with their nightly dose of biting satire, but here Noah turns his focus inward, giving readers a deeply personal, heartfelt, and humorous look at the world that shaped him. Noah was born a crime, the son of a white Swiss father and a black Xhosa mother, at a time when such a union was punishable by five years in prison. Living proof of his parents indiscretion, Trevor was kept mostly indoors for the first 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, take him away. Finally liberated by the end of South Africa s white rule, Trevor and his mother set forth on a grand adventure, living openly and freely and embracing the opportunities won by a centuries-long struggle. A collection of eighteen personal essays, Born a Crime tells the story of a mischievous young boy who grows into a restless young man as he struggles to find himself in a world where he was never supposed to exist. Born a Crime is equally the story of that young man s fearless, rebellious, and fervently religious mother a woman determined to save her son from the cycle of poverty, violence, and abuse that ultimately threatens her own life. 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, Noah illuminates his curious world with an incisive wi

              The host of The Daily Show, Trevor Noah, tells the story of growing up half black, half white in South Africa under and after apartheid in this young readers' adaptation of his bestselling adult memoir Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood. BORN A CRIME IS SOON TO ...BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING OSCAR WINNER LUPITA NYONG'O! Trevor Noah, the funny guy who hosts The Daily Show, shares his remarkable story of growing up in South Africa, the child of a black South African mother and a white European father, at a time when it was against the law for a mixed-race child like him to exist. But he did exist--and from the beginning, the often-misbehaved Trevor used his keen smarts and humor to navigate a harsh life under a racist government. This compelling memoir blends drama, comedy, and tragedy to depict the day-to-day trials that turned a boy into a young man. In a country where racism barred blacks from social, educational, and economic opportunity, Trevor surmounted staggering obstacles and created a promising future for himself, thanks to his mom's unwavering love and indomitable will. It's Trevor Noah: Born a Crime not only provides a fascinating and honest perspective on South Africa's racial history, but it will also astound and inspire young readers looking to improve their own lives.
