Born a Crime is the story of Noah’s childhood growing up with a white father and a black mother under South Africa’s apartheid government. By turns funny, inspiring, sad, and smart, it also reflects on a dark period in South Africa’s history. Noah tells his story, which ranges from the humorous to the traumatic, with his cutting wit and incisive perspective. At times both poignant and outrageous, Noah deals with the intersection of his life and the history of a country reckoning with deep-seated racism and finds a parallel here to the United States.
