Johannesburg – Many of our local stars have now added “author” to their long list of talents, penning tell-all books and giving fans an inside look into their lives. 

With the recent success of Trevor Noah’s book, Born A Crime, we were inspired to take a look at some of our fav celebs-turned-authors and their must-read books.  

1. Trevor Noah – Born a Crime 

A bit of an obvious choice, but it would be a crime for us to leave Trevor and his best-selling book off of this list.
