Host of The Daily Show and one of South Africa's funniest exports, Trevor Noah, released his autobiography, Born A Crime, on 15 November. The much-anticipated book was named a New York Times bestseller and has now debuted at number 2 on Audible.com's non-fiction charts.

The autobiography, narrated by Noah, is in the top ten of the audiobook service's sales. The subscription-based service is a large part of Amazon'a literary offering.

Noah's account of his life has received praise on Twitter from readers and listeners alike.

In the book, Noah discusses his childhood in apartheid South Africa — born to a black mother and a white father, a crime punishable with imprisonment under the Immorality Act of the time. According The A.V. Club, Born A Crime "mixes his fascinating history with his signature humor".
