"very moving and interesting book to read".New York Times

"Very interesting book to read " USA magazine

"Very exciting and very sad to read." Washington news

This book details the life of a colorful (mixed race) person born in 1984 to a Xhosa mother and a Swiss-German father. Sometimes funny, sometimes sad and always so alarming, this book presents a heartbreaking look, through the experiences of Trevor Noah and his family, of life in South Africa under Apartheid and the post-Apartheid era. Trevor Noah, known to be a renowned comedian, recites here raw and deeply personal anecdotes and memories about being "half white, half black" in a world where his birth violated many laws, statutes. and regulations.

Born on February 20, 1984 in Johannesburg, he is the son of a South African of Xhosa ethnicity named Patricia. His father's name is Robert and he's a Swiss, of German-speaking ethnicity. As the humorist explains in his autobiography, he was "a crime". His mother faced fines and a five-year prison sentence for his birth, which is why Trevor Noah lived, the vast majority of his childhood and adolescence, in hiding.
