Trevor 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 h

An insightful, humorous, and poignant look at life in apartheid South Africa, filled with insightful reflections and raw anecdotes that illustrate the absurdity and complexity of racial identity. ( )
  bunniex | Feb 22, 2024 |
Wonderful, colorful stories from Mr. Noah's childhood, not just about the insidious institution of apartheid but about its democratic aftermath; family and particularly, his mother's fierce love; being different because he was "colored" and therefore neither black nor white (his mother a Black African, his father a Swiss-German ex-pat), and, under the apartheid regime, a "crime" because he was the product of an illegal union; religion; and rebellion. The stories are not presented linearly, and they are often vignettes, but they trace Mr. Noah's life from his birth in 1984 to his early years as a comedian. I read part of it on my Kindle app but listened to most on Audible. Mr. Noah narrated, which made it perfect. ( )

I laughed, I raged at the world, I marveled at Trevor's adaptability, and I began to believe in something a little bit mystical in this world. I could hear so much of his voice, and I felt like I was getting to know a new side of Trevor. This was so well-written that I felt like we were two friends just chatting, and he was telling stories as we sat somewhere cozy.

So good! He’s so funny and that makes the heartbreaking stories a little easier to handle. I didn’t know much about apartheid and the details he shares are just appalling.

It’s really hard to reconcile a person you think of only as being rich and famous and find out that their life was so full of hardship. ( )

Growing up the way I did, I learned how easy it is for white people to get comfortable with a system that awards them all the perks.
That, and so many other smaller incidents in my life, made me realize that language, even more than color, defines who you are to people.
The doctors took her up to the delivery room, cut open her belly, and reached in and pulled out a half-white, half-black child who violated any number of laws, statutes, and regulations—I was born a crime.
Sometimes we’d pull over and go up to the wall, and she’d put me on her shoulders like I was a little periscope.
I was just high-energy and knew what I wanted to do.
