Start Publishing Notes' Summary, Analysis, and Review of Trevor Noah's Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood includes a summary of the book, review, analysis & key takeaways, and detailed "About the Author" section. PREVIEW: Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood is television star Trevor Noah's memoir about growing up as a mixed-race child-first under apartheid, and then in its wake. Part tribute to his mother, part indictment of his white oppressors, this coming-of-age story paints a vibrant picture of Johannesburg in the 1980s and '90s, and beyond. Born to a black mother and a white father in 1984, Noah and his family navigated many unusual challenges on top of the usual hardships faced by black families in that time and place. Noah's parents, an African woman and a Swiss man, had an unusual relationship. They never married, and Noah isn't sure to what degree they were even romantically involved. (They were, at the very least, good friends.) His mother was keen to have a child, and his father was to be a glorified sperm donor. But after Noah was born, his father decided that he wanted to be meaningfully involved in his life.
