The famous South African comedian and writer Trevor Noah is publishing a second book later this year. We don’t know the title of the book yet. All we know at this point is that it is described as a modern fable and will be published by One World, an imprint of Random House.
The publisher has described the book as a “gorgeously illustrated and moving modern fable for readers of all ages about forgiveness, acceptance and the secret to solidarity.” According to The Hollywood Reporter, Noah’s book evokes allegories and fables like Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and The Little Prince.
Noah is best known for his role as the host of The Daily Show. His previous book was an autobiographical comedy titled Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood (2016) which became an international bestseller and spent a whopping 32 weeks on the New York Times hardcover nonfiction list. The book also won the 2017 Thurber Prize for Humor.
In Born a Crime, Noah told the story of growing up in South Africa as a mixed-race child and the humor and battles that came with that. Perhaps his new book will follow the same themes but in the form of an allegorical fable?
