#38 — The Sellout

The Sellout by Paul Beatty
Rating: 4/5
  • About race in America — while focusing mostly on the African-American experience, it was nonetheless an equal opportunity spoofer
  • I faded in and out; when it was good, it was completely on point. Other times, it rambled and seemed like it was trying too hard to be shocking
  • This is the type of book that should probably be re-read, as you will most likely find something new or get a joke/reference that you glossed over previously
