'The Daily Show' host Trevor Noah just landed his first book deal.


Trevor Noah just landed his first book deal. As AP reports, Spiegel & Grau, an imprint of Penguin Random House, has acquired a collection of personal essays by The Daily Show host about "growing up in South Africa during the last gasps of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that came with its demise."

Currently untitled, the book will come out this November.

“I couldn't find a good book about myself so I decided to write one. And just like me this book doesn't have an appendix," Noah said in a statement.
