In November 2016, Trevor released his first book “Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood,” which was an instant New York Times best-seller. The book is collection of personal stories about growing up in South Africa during the last gasps of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that came with its demise. Already known for his incisive social and political commentary, here Noah turns his focus inward, giving readers an intimate look at the world that shaped him.
