THE SELLOUT by Paul Beatty

April 8, 2015

Paul Beatty spoke about his book, The Sellout, at Busboys & Poets on Wednesday, April 8, 2015.

Beatty’s fiction, which includes Tuff and The White Boy Shuffle, has earned acclaim for its bold and comical take on social issues. In his fourth novel, Beatty, who is also a poet and the editor of Hokum: An Anthology of African-American Humor, deploys deft satire as he follows an anonymous young man grappling with the recent shooting death of his father, a sociologist who in fact was not writing the magnum opus he had claimed, and the state’s threat to wipe his town, Dickens, off the California map.
