Summary

When Sean Mallen finally landed his dream job, it fell on him like a ton of bricks.Not unlike the plaster in his crappy, overpriced London flat.  
 

The veteran journalist was ecstatic when he unexpectedly got the chance he’d
always craved: to be a London-based foreign correspondent. It meant living in a
great city and covering great events, starting with the Royal Wedding of William
and Kate. Except: his tearful wife and six-year-old daughter hated the idea of
uprooting their lives and moving to another country.  
 

Falling for London is the hilarious and touching story of how he convinced
them to go, how they learned to live in and love that wondrous but challenging
city, and how his dream came true in ways he could have never expected.

    This “interesting, insightful book” by the author of Deep South reveals “a side of Britain few visitors see” (The New York Times Book Review). After eleven years as an American living in London, the renowned travel writer Paul Theroux set out to travel clockwise around the coast of Great Britain to find out what the British were really like. The result is this perceptive, hilarious record of the journey. Whether in Cornwall or Wales, Ulster or Scotland, the people he encountered along the way revealed far more of themselves than they perhaps intended to display to a stranger. Theroux captured their rich and varied conversational commentary with caustic wit and penetrating insight. “A sharp and funny descriptive writer . . . Theroux is a good companion.” —The Times (London)

    Trevor Noah's story began with a criminal act: his birth. During the apartheid in South Africa, an interracial union was forbidden by the law and could ensue five years of imprisonment. Trevor's father was a Swiss man and his mother was a Xhosa woman—he was the living proof of their relation. Because of this, Trevor grew up being hidden and protected by his mother, by all means possible, in fear of the government taking him away from her. When South Africa was finally liberated from the white colonization, Trevor and his mother went off on an adventure entailing multitudes of difficulties and seizing opportunities. 
    The book, Born a Crime, tells the tale of a young mixed-race boy growing up in a world where he was never supposed to exist. It tells his story of overcoming difficulties he could possibly face with his strong, courageous, dedicated, and religion mother who was determined to take her son away from all the violence, poverty, and abuse that she, herself, faced. 
    Every story within the overarching story of Trevor involves crises that are overwhelming, dangerous, and touching—with a touch of humor. From having to survive eating caterpillars for dinner, experiencing attempted kidnapping, to simply trying to work out how the world of dating in high school, Trevor shows the stories reflecting himself through wit and humor. He creates a tale entwining small sagas of trying to grow up as a fine man amidst a difficult and dangerous world, guided by his own sense of humor and his mother's unconditional love.
