Talks & ideas

In Paul Beatty’s Man Booker Prize-winning novel, The Sellout, the hero – a grower of artisanal marijuana and water melons – attempts to reintroduce slavery and segregation in his LA neighbourhood.

Beatty’s savage satire, reflecting as it does the hypocrisies of contemporary America, often reads like reportage. Join one of America’s most exuberant and tuned-in voices, poet, editor and author of three previous novels in a discussion with Paula Morris.
