The keenly awaited sequel to the internationally bestselling BORN A CRIME
Born A Crime, Trevor Noah's brilliant memoir of his South African childhood was a phenomenon. Picked out as a must-read by everyone from Oprah Winfrey to Bill Gates, it has been a huge bestseller all round the world and won several prizes including the Thurber Prize for comic writing. This is the eagerly awaited next installment of his incredible story.
19 year-old Trevor leaves home and promptly manages to fall foul of the local mafia. His love life is a complete disaster; his jobs full of mistakes and missteps -- he even ends up in prison -- and the stories of his misadventures set against the backdrop of a country in turmoil make for riveting and hilarious reading. Like Born a Crime this is far more than a compelling memoir -- it is also the irreverent story of South Africa's own coming of age.
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.
