Born a Crime: Stories From a South African Childhood

up:: Books


Review / Reflection (SPOILERS!)

One of my favourite reads of 2021. This was a funny, witty and smart read. Noah shares his stories of growing up against the backdrop of Apartheid and dismantels the racist systems while staying personal and caring. It was entertaining, saddening, amazing and tragic to hear about his stories growing up. His mum is the clear hero of the story. Her faith is amazing, culminating in an amazing miracle that saves her life.
