Jan Book discussion - 'Born a Crime' by Trevor Noah
Our next book club read will be 'Born a Crime' by Trevor Noah.
It's an autobiography written by Trevor Noah; the South African comedian and the host of 'The Daily Show' on Comedy Central. Told in his characteristic style, Trevor Noah manages to depict his years growing up in apartheid South Africa with humour, grace and honesty.
As the light-skinned son of a white father and a black mother, Noah himself was classified as a "colored" in accordance to the apartheid system of racial classification. Growing up under this system wasn't easy; yet Trevor manages to weave humor into his story. The book also reads as an ode to his mum who did everything in her power to give him as normal a childhood as possible.
I'd also recommend listening to the book on Audible since Trevor narrates it himself. Anyone who has watched his Daily Show would know that he has a voice that is just perfect for storytelling.
