#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - The compelling, inspiring, and comically sublime story of one man's coming-of-age, set during the twilight of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that followedNAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BYMichiko Kakutani, New York Times - Newsday - Esquire - NPR - BooklistTrevor Noah's unlikely path from apartheid South Africa to the desk of The Daily Show 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. Living proof of his parents' indiscretion, Trevor was 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. Finally liberated by the end of South Africa's tyrannical 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.Born a Crime is 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. It is also the story of that young man's relationship with his fearless, rebellious, and fervently religious mother--his teammate, a woman determined to save her son from the cycle of poverty, violence, and abuse that would ultimately threaten her own life.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.Praise for Born a Crime " A] compelling new memoir . . . By turns alarming, sad and funny, Trevor Noah's] book provides a harrowing look, through the prism of Mr. Noah's family, at life in South Africa under apartheid. . . . Born a Crime is not just an unnerving account of growing up in South Africa under apartheid, but a love letter to the author's remarkable mother."--Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times" An] unforgettable memoir."--Parade "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 her--and 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… (mere)

I listened to the audiobook, Trevor Noah reading his own book. It was wonderful. ( )
  emrsalgado | Jul 23, 2021 |
Kütkestav-liigutav, samas meelelahutuslik ja südamlik (ja lõpuosas hämmeldust tekitav) lugu Lõuna-Aafrikas sündinust ja üleskasvanud USA meelelahutajast Trevor Noah'st, ehk sellest kuidas pealt-, aga veelgi enam, seestvaates absurdsest-lootusetust-vägivaldsest keskkonnast on võimalik n-ö välja rabeleda ja jõuda heale elujärjele kui saatjateks-toetajetks on vankumatu vanemlik hool, usk Jumalasse, endasse, inimeste headusse ja helegemasse tulevikku.
Kuulasin seda inglise keelse audioraamatuna. Ma usun, et see on parim moodus sellest raamatust täiel määral osas saada ja seda nautida kuivõrd sisselugejaks on autor ise, kes on kuulus oma huumoritaju, tarmukuse, suurepärase väljendusrikkuse ja hea sõnaseadmise oskuse poolest. Sama olulist osa mängivad autori-narraatori erinevates aafrika keeltes esitatud lõigud ja repliigid, mis lisavad raamatule elu ja viivad kuulaja/lugeja sügavamalt sündmuste keerisesse. ( )

Enjoyable read. I only wish Noah would have filled in the huge gap from being a hustler in the slums of South Africa to making it as a comedian in the clubs in London. Kind of a big jump that from reading the book you'd wonder how that happened. Otherwise very entertaining. ( )

Trevor Noah's childhood is summarized in a series of vignettes, many of which are humorous. He was an energetic and bright child, who got in trouble regularly. The son of a white German father and a poor black mother, Trevor never really fit in very well: he identified with the blacks, but looked "colored", and spoke like an educated white man. His mother challenged him always, treating him like an adult, and helped him rise to success. His stepfather eventually drove him away from his own father and his mother. I felt the last chapter was a re-hash of many stories already told until the zinger at the end. Noah's observations about South Africa and race and racism, which appear in every chapter are thoughtful and insightful. Recommended. ( )

What a story! I'm not surprised that Trevor Noah is a good writer, but Born a Crime is both a fascinating glimpse into life in apartheid and post-apartheid South Africa and a well-crafted and touching memoir. Great stuff. ( )
