Die Perlenohrringe meines Vaters Book Description:

Das neue, große Buch der Pulitzer-Preisträgerin Die Nachricht trifft sie aus heiterem Himmel. Ihr Vater, mit dem sie kaum noch Kontakt hatte und der inzwischen wieder in seinem Heimatland Ungarn lebt, hatte eine Geschlechtsumwandlung vornehmen lassen. Welche Verbindung gibt es zwischen diesem neuen Elternteil, der sich nun "vollständig als Frau" identifiziert, und dem wortkargen, explosiven und teilweise gewalttätigen Vater, den sie kannte? Faludi sucht die Lösung dieses Rätsels in den Nischen ihrer Vorort-Kindheit und in den vielen Verkörperungen ihres Vaters: Jude im Budapest des Zweiten Weltkriegs, Abenteurer im Amazonasgebiet, All-American Dad und heute eine Frau, die ihr Judentum wiederentdeckt hat. Faludis Versuch, diese Metamorphose zu verstehen, lässt sie Grenzen überwinden – historische, politische, religiöse, sexuelle –, um sie schließlich zu der Frage unserer Zeit zu bringen: Ist Identität etwas, das wir wählen, oder ist Identität etwas, dem wir nicht entkommen können?

Born A Crime Book Description:

WINNER OF THE THURBER PRIZE The compelling, inspiring, (often comic) coming-of-age story of Trevor Noah, set during the twilight of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. One of the comedy world's brightest new voices, Trevor Noah is a light-footed but sharp-minded observer of the absurdities of politics, race and identity, sharing jokes and insights drawn from the wealth of experience acquired in his relatively young life. As host of the US hit show The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, he provides viewers around the globe with their nightly dose of biting satire, but here Noah turns his focus inward, giving readers a deeply personal, heartfelt and humorous look at the world that shaped him. Noah was born a crime, son of a white Swiss father and a black Xhosa mother, at a time when such a union was punishable by five years in prison. Living proof of his parents' indiscretion, Trevor was kept mostly indoors for the first years of his life, bound by the extreme and often absurd measures his mother took to hide him from a government that could, at any moment, take him away. A collection of eighteen personal stories, Born a Crime tells the story of a mischievous young boy growing into a restless young man as he struggles to find his place in a world where he was never supposed to exist. Born a Crime is equally the story of that young man's fearless, rebellious and fervently religious mother - a woman determined to save her son from the cycle of poverty, violence and abuse that ultimately threatens her own life. Whether subsisting on caterpillars for dinner during hard times, being thrown from a moving car during an attempted kidnapping, or just trying to survive the life-and-death pitfalls of dating in high school, Noah illuminates his curious world with an incisive wit and an unflinching honesty. His stories weave together to form a personal portrait of an unlikely childhood in a dangerous time, as moving and unforgettable as the very best memoirs and as funny as Noah's own hilarious stand-up. Born a Crime is a must read.

Born a Crime Book Description:

"One of the comedy world's fastest-rising stars tells his wild coming of age story during the twilight of apartheid in South Africa and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. Noah provides something deeper than traditional memorists: powerfully funny observations about how farcical political and social systems play out in our lives. Trevor Noah is the host of The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, where he gleefully provides America with its nightly dose of serrated satire. He is a light-footed but cutting observer of the relentless absurdities of politics, nationalism and race--and in particular the craziness of his own young life, which he's lived at the intersections of culture and history. In his first book, Noah tells his coming of age story with his larger-than-life mother during the last gasps of apartheid-era South Africa and the turbulent years that followed. Noah was born illegal--the son of a white, Dutch father and a black Xhosa mother, who had to pretend to be his nanny or his father's servant in the brief moments when the family came together. His brilliantly eccentric mother loomed over his life--a comically zealous Christian (they went to church six days a week and three times on Sunday), a savvy hustler who kept food on their table during rough times, and an aggressively involved, if often seriously misguided, parent who set Noah on his bumpy path to stardom. The stories Noah tells are sometimes dark, occasionally bizarre, frequently tender, and always hilarious--whether he's subsisting on caterpillars during months of extreme poverty or making comically pitiful attempts at teenage romance in a color-obsessed world; whether's he's being thrown into jail as the hapless fall guy for a crime he didn't commit or being thrown by his mother from a speeding car driven by murderous gangsters."--

PLEASE NOTE: This is a key takeaways and analysis of the book and NOT the original book. Start Publishing Notes' Summary, Analysis, and Review of Trevor Noah's Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood includes a summary of the book, review, analysis & key takeaways, and detailed "About the Author" section. PREVIEW: Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood is television star Trevor Noah's memoir about growing up as a mixed-race child-first under apartheid, and then in its wake. Part tribute to his mother, part indictment of his white oppressors, this coming-of-age story paints a vibrant picture of Johannesburg in the 1980s and '90s, and beyond. Born to a black mother and a white father in 1984, Noah and his family navigated many unusual challenges on top of the usual hardships faced by black families in that time and place. Noah's parents, an African woman and a Swiss man, had an unusual relationship. They never married, and Noah isn't sure to what degree they were even romantically involved. (They were, at the very least, good friends.) His mother was keen to have a child, and his father was to be a glorified sperm donor. But after Noah was born, his father decided that he wanted to be meaningfully involved in his life.

Diary as Literature Through the Lens of Multiculturalism in America Book Description:

Meandering plots, dead ends, and repetition, diaries do not conform to literary expectations, yet they still manage to engage the reader, arouse empathy and elicit emotional responses that many may be more inclined to associate with works of fiction. Blurring the lines between literary genres, diary writing can be considered a quasi-literary genre that offers a unique insight into the lives of those we may have otherwise never discovered. This edited volume examines how diarists, poets, writers, musicians, and celebrities use their diary to reflect on multiculturalism and intercultural relations. Within this book, multiculturalism is defined as the sociocultural experiences of underrepresented groups who fall outside the mainstream of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability, and language. Multiculturalism reflects different cultures and racial groups with equal rights and opportunities, equal attention and representation without assimilation. In America, the multicultural society includes various cultural and ethnic groups that do not necessarily have engaging interaction with each other whereas, importantly, intercultural is a community of cultures who learn from each other, and have respect and understand different cultures. Presented as a collection of academic essays and creative writing, The Diary as Literature Through the Lens of Multiculturalism in America analyses diary writing in its many forms from oral diaries and memoirs to letters and travel writing. Divided into three sections: Diaries of the American Civil War, Diaries of Trips and Letters of Diaspora, and Diaries of Family, Prison Lyrics, and a Memoir, the contributors bring a range of expertise to this quasi-literary genre including comparative and transatlantic literature, composition and rhetoric, history and women and gender studies.
