Born a Crime: Stories From a South African ChildhoodBorn a Crime: Stories From a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Daily Show has taken on some added credibility as I read Trevor Noah's absolutely remarkable story. He tells it with much humor. It is personal, absorbing, and intimate with discussions of the realities of race and apartheid, then and now. For the society Trevor was born into, he was privileged, and this book is a paean to that privilege: his mother. I like this man, and I like his mother even more.
