Born a Crime is full of memorable stories and people from Trevor Noah’s childhood. Which stories, friends, or family members were most memorable to you? Why?

Laura | 92 comments For me it was Trevor's last story of how his Mother was shot. I can't imagine how hard it must have been for him to document that story.
I listened to the audiobook of "Born a Crime" and to hear him tell you the story about the events that happened, I simply do not know how he got through that recording. What a life he and his family lived. His Mum is definitely a fighter.

Anna (iudita) | 450 comments My memorable moment was when his mother threw him out of the car and screamed at him to run. That must have been a very scary traumatic moment for both him and his mom, but he managed to tell it as a funny story. Can you imagine feeling so scared and desperate that you would push your kid out of a moving car and then jump out yourself with a baby in your arms?
What an experience!
