Description

Born in Dickens, Los Angeles, the narrator of The Sellout spent his childhood as the subject in his father's racially charged psychological studies. He is told that his father’s memoir will solve their financial woes. But when his father is killed, he discovers there never was a memoir. Fuelled by despair, he sets out to right this wrong with the most outrageous action conceivable: reinstating slavery and segregating the local high school, which lands him in the Supreme Court. *Contains strong content.

Professional reviews

"Winner of the 2016 Man Booker Prize. A biting satire about a young man's isolated upbringing and the race trial that sends him to the Supreme Court. “An eccentric mix of Swiftian satire and observational comedy […] I was banned from reading in bed because I was laughing so much.” OLIVIA WILLIAMS, MAN BOOKER JUDGE 2016 “There’s satire and then there’s satire, and without question Paul Beatty’s caustic third novel, The Sellout, definitely falls into the latter category […] brutally honest and very funny.” INDEPENDENT"
