Trevor Noah to Release ‘Into the Uncut Grass’ in October
“Few memories in my life bring me more joy than the first few books I read as a child,” said Noah. “Either with my mom or reading alone, those simple stories shaped so much of how I saw the world. I hope this story can bring a little bit of that same joy to readers of all ages.”
This will be the Noah’s second book Noah has authored. Born a Crime is a best-selling memoir and told of Noah’s childhood in South Africa.
His latest novel Into the Uncut Grass is a “moving modern fable” that focuses on forgiveness, acceptence, and solifarity. It is similar to novels sich as Alice in Wonderland, The Little Prince and The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse.
“Trevor proved in his first book that he is one of the most masterful storytellers of our time,” One World Executive Vice President and Publisher Chris Jackson stated. “And for all of Born A Crime’s humor and brilliant pathos, readers were drawn just as much to Trevor’s warmth and powerfully articulated aphoristic wisdom.”
“This new book offers that storytelling prowess in a compressed and crystallized new form, layered with intelligence, uncloying sweetness, and emotional power. This is a project that Trevor is passionate about — and whose message and lessons are both timeless and urgent.”
