#BookFaceFriday “Born a Crime” by Trevor Noah
This week’s #BookFaceFriday is larger than life.
We are here for all the amazing memoirs and nonfiction works available right now, we couldn’t help but highlight “Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood” by Trevor Noah (One World, 2015.) It’s available as a book club kit and on Nebraska OverDrive Libraries. In fact,
Nebraska OverDrive Libraries has over 3,700 titles in its Nonfiction: Biography & Autobiography
section alone. This excellent memoir is available as an eBook.
“Powerful prose . . . told through stories and vignettes that are sharply observed, deftly conveyed and consistently candid. Growing organically from them is an affecting investigation of identity, ethnicity, language, masculinity, nationality and, most of all, humanity.”
— Mail & Guardian (South Africa)
