Trevor Noah’s lightning-fast ascendancy to the top of the comedic
heap—after only six months as a correspondent for Comedy Central’s
Daily Show in 2015, he was chosen as host upon Jon Stewart’s
departure—is well-known. But Born a Crime: Stories from a
South African Childhood (Random/Spiegel & Grau) proves Trevor
Noah’s real-life story is even more astonishing.
