Book 16 of 2017 is Born a Crime by Trevor Noah.
For someone who used to say she didn't like autobiographies, some the best books I have read in the last few years are just that. This is one of them.
I laughed, I cried. I felt so connected to this half black and half white boy telling the story. The culture you grow up with. The never belonging completely anywhere. But I didn't grow up a black man in South Africa so there is a big difference.
If you read any non-fiction this year, let this be it.
5 amazing black mothers out of 5.
Should I read this? Everybody should.
What did I learn? Less learnt than reinforced is the belief I have always had that not really belonging anywhere allows you to belong everywhere. That's how I've always seen myself and it is a nice idea.
