Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood

This was like a funnier, South African version of Hillbilly Elegy. I like Trevor Noah, I think he’s funny, and this was a nice window into his childhood. He tells stories of growing up as a semi-delinquent, and uses them to share broader info about South Africa, its cultural profile, the different neighborhoods he was exposed to, and of course apartheid. There are many serious topics, and Noah always finds a way to bring out the humor in some and be good humored about others. (View on Amazon)
