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.

An engaging, fast-paced and vivid read . . . Essential reading not only because it is a personal story of survival, leavened with insight and wit, but because it does more to expose apartheid - its legacy, its pettiness, its small-minded stupidity and its damage - than any other recent history book or academic text - GUARDIAN

It's no surprise that Trevor Noah, the slyly suave successor to Jon Stewart as host of The Daily Show, should write a smart book. But 'smart' doesn't begin to cover what he pulls off in Born a Crime . . . Noah's memoir is extraordinary . . . essential reading on every level. It's hard to imagine anyone else doing a finer job of it - SEATTLE TIMES

Powerful . . . a unique perspective - THE TIMES
