Portrait
Born under apartheid to a black South African mother and a white European father, Trevor Noah´s improbable rise to stardom led to his sold-out one-man show at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival that became one of the most talked-about shows at the festival that year. He has appeared on QI, 8 Out of 10 Cats, The Royal Variety Performance and Live at the Apollo. In 2015 Noah succeeded Jon Stewart as host of The Daily Show.

„Growing Up as a Mixed Child During Apartheid“

Sabrina Reiter, Thalia-Buchhandlung Wien, Donauzentrum

With "Born a Crime" South-African comedian Trevor Noah has written a book that's not only eye-opening and thought-provoking, but also touching and at times hilarious.

In this book Noah talks about what it was like for him to grow up as a mixed child during apartheid and the hard times that followed. He shares stories from his childhood and youth which made me alternately laugh out loud and shake my head in disbelief. Above all this is not just a coming-of-age story under difficult circumstances, though, but a declaration of love to the strong and independent woman that is Trevor Noah's mother.

I really loved this book. I can honestly say that I've not only learned more about the comedian's personal background but also about the complexity of a dark part of South-African history.
The only point of critique would be that this book isn't told in the chronologically right order which would have made it easier and at times less confusing to read.

I recommend "Born a Crime" to fans of the author as well as to people who are interested in reading a true story about life during apartheid.

Loveletter to a mother

Bewertet: eBook (ePUB)

Dieses Buch ist weniger ein Memoir als ein Liebesbrief an eine tolle Frau.

Obwohl es in Born A Crime eigentlich um Trevor Noah geht, zieht sich die Geschichte seiner Mutter und ihr Einfluss auf Noah's Leben wie ein roter Faden durch die Erzählung. Erschreckend fand ich, wie wenig ich tatsächlich über Südafrika und die Apartheit weiß. Ein erster Einblick kratzt mit Sicherheit nur an der Oberfläche der Geschichte Südafrikas. Am Ende bleibt jedem Leser aber auch eine andere Erkenntnis: Wer sich nicht zumindest ein bisschen in Patricia Nombuyiselo Noah verliebt, hat das Buch nicht verstanden.

Emotional rollercoaster

You do not need to know Trevor Noah to read this book. What pulled me in was the premise of a biographical approach to a South African childhood. This was the most emotional book I've read this year.

What pulled me in was the premise of a biographical approach to a South African childhood. This was the most emotional book I've read this year. While reading this book I laughed out loud out of joy, so you might not want to read this one on the subway. Even though the overall tone was kept very light, this book also put tears in my eyes. Witty and funny in some parts, and utterly saddening in others. I would summarize it as a thought provoking love letter of a young man for his mother.
