    "Born A Crime" by Trevor Noah

    This comedian, who replaced Jon Stewart on The Daily Show, wrote a memoir about his childhood in South Africa, as the son of a black mother and a white father...which was literally against the apartheid law at the time. He is poignant, wise, kind, humorous, and informative. He absolutely credits his mother for what he has achieved, due to her ferocious insistence on education and good behavior, in a time and place where this was virtually impossible to achieve. This was a great book!

    Thank you, I will look for this book as I was born in SA during apartheid period but immigrated when a child. I have never lost my interest in SA and Africa as a whole fascinating place in the world.

    ETA: Just requested it from the library with no waiting list

    I think I'm in queue for that at the library. Noah's humor has grown on me, or maybe his delivery has.

    I love Trevor, too and thoroughly enjoyed the book. I think there's going to be a movie.
