We tell people to follow their dreams, but you can only dream of what you can imagine, and, depending on where you come from, your imagination can be quite limited.
Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood (2016) is the memoir of South African comedian and The Daily Show host Trevor Noah. Noah was born during apartheid to a white Swiss father and a black Xhosa mother, a relationship which was punishable by five years in prison. From a childhood being hidden from the government by his mother who could take him away, to a mischievous and adventurous post-apartheid young adulthood, Noah’s exceptional writing tells the story of the struggle to live in a world where he should have never existed.
