Hear an Exclusive Clip From Trevor Noah’s New Book, ‘Born a Crime’

Tomorrow, Trevor Noah will officially add “author” to his CV with the release of his first book, a collection of 18 personal essays centered around The Daily Showhost’s childhood in South Africa at the tail end of apartheid and the precarious days of “freedom” that followed.

The 304-page memoir, Born a Crime, is getting a simultaneous audiobook narrated by Noah himself. In a new clip premiering exclusively on Okayafrica today, we get to better understand Noah’s relationship with his eccentric Xhosa mother.

Patricia Noah, we learn, is a religious woman. She’s also a very stubborn woman. In the short anecdote below, Noah tells of playing devil’s advocate to his mother’s “faith-based obstinacy.”

Listen here.

The print and audio versions of ‘Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood’ are out this Tuesday via Penguin Random House’s Spiegel & Grau and Audible Studios respectively.
