The new cover is simpler than the artistic one that will be used in the US and international editions, and it features a casually dressed Trevor.
Have a look at the difference.
Noah announced the cover change on his Twitter account yesterday morning.
Born a Crime tells the story of his childhood and journey as the child of an illegal mixed-race relationship during the apartheid era.
According to the publishers, Pan Macmillan South Africa, the book will also cover Trevor’s battles growing up in extreme poverty, his time in jail, facing gangsters and trying to find teenage romance.
“The experiences covered in this book will shock and amaze, even as they leave you rolling on the floor with laughter,” reads the publisher’s statement.
According to Hollywood Reporter, Noah’s book deal is believed to be $3-million.
Born a Crime can be ordered before the launch through Amazon at R392 a copy.
