    Inhaltsangabe

    The compelling, inspiring (often comic) coming-of-age story of Trevor Noah, set during the twilight of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed.

    One of the comedy world's brightest new voices, Trevor Noah is a light-footed but sharp-minded observer of the absurdities of politics, race and identity, sharing jokes and insights drawn from the wealth of experience acquired in his relatively young life. As host of the US hit show The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, he provides viewers around the globe with their nightly dose of biting satire, but here Noah turns his focus inward, giving listeners a deeply personal, heartfelt and humorous look at the world that shaped him.

    Noah was born a crime, son of a white Swiss father and a black Xhosa mother, at a time when such a union was punishable by five years in prison. Living proof of his parents' indiscretion, Trevor was kept mostly indoors for the first years of his life, bound by the extreme and often absurd measures his mother took to hide him from a government that could, at any moment, take him away.

    A collection of 18 personal stories, Born a Crime tells the story of a mischievous young boy growing into a restless young man as he struggles to find his place in a world where he was never supposed to exist. Born a Crime is equally the story of that young man's fearless, rebellious and fervently religious mother - a woman determined to save her son from the cycle of poverty, violence and abuse that ultimately threatens her own life.

    Whether subsisting on caterpillars for dinner during hard times, being thrown from a moving car during an attempted kidnapping, or just trying to survive the life-and-death pitfalls of dating in high school, Noah illuminates his curious world with incisive wit and unflinching honesty. His stories weave together to form a personal portrait of an unlikely childhood in a dangerous time, as moving and unforgettable as the very best memoirs and as funny as Noah's own hilarious stand-up.

    Born a Crime is a must-listen.

    What an admirable human and what an amazing book!

    This is by far the best audio book I've listened to. For once, I would strongly recommend an audio book over its paper twin - - the masterful performance added up to the gripping, masterfully written storyline. I love Trevor and I've grown to love his mom who raised a kind, humane, caring, feminist son, a person who's truly an inspiration and a role model to look up to.

    Moving experiences - unbelievable insights

    Noah appears to be a stunning performer of the story of his breathtaking upbringing. I enjoyed every minute. This audiobook makes me laughing and crying and it is a very important story about having faith in God even when it looks as there is none.

    :)

    Der Drahtseilakt zwischen "unfassbar witzig", "bildend" und "politisch zum Nachdenken anregend" wurde sehr brillant gemeistert.

    Absolutely remarkable

    I am amazed by the similarities of a childhood in the developing world. I recognize this world and I appreciate someone with the grace and courage to tell it in a self-aware and genteel manner. Commonwealth life... decolonization. These stories inform me more about the human spirit than anything else.

    amazing storytelling and great to listen to!

    such a great story and amazing storytelling by Noah. this book does deal with domestic violence, so whilst it is amazing, it could be triggering for some people. All in all, a must read if you can.
