The Daily Show host Trevor Noah was born in apartheid South Africa, the son of a Xhosa mother and Swiss German father whose relationship was criminalized under the law. Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood collects Noah’s reflections on those beginnings, and the unique perspective conferred by straddling two worlds—their languages, societies and cultures—in the midst of unprecedented social change. With his signature humor and astonishing insight, Noah tells his life story, one that improbably winds its way to America’s top comedy shows. Chris Jackson, the book’s editor, helps navigate the conversation.
