The Sellout - Paul Beatty

Ever since he seared himself onto America’s literary consciousness with White Boy Shuffle, Paul Beatty has never been afraid to court offense, and The Sellout is, emphatically, no exception. Happily, though, Beatty’s easily got the talent, wit, and insight to justify every shocking sentence, and every outrageous sentiment. Starting with a young African-American narrator from the “agrarian ghetto” of Dickens, LA, and ending with a race trial in the Supreme Court, Beatty delivers page after page of quick-fire hilarity, absurdity and profundity. He doesn’t so much skewer the serious societal issues of our age as rip them limb-from-limb, in one of the most instantly recognizable voices in modern literature.
