Product description

Review

"Paul Beatty's hip-hop epic never misses a beat in telling how a nerdy black kid from a white-bread neighbourhood becomes an infamous inner-city poet laureate, via an obligatory stint as a local basketball hero and some daredevilling as a member of the Gun Totin' Hooligans. Simultaneously hilarious and immensely moving, Beatty's Pynchonesque non sequiturs cascade with the seeming ease of an Armstrong trill" (New Yorker)

"A blast of satirical heat from the talented heart of black American life... aimed almost as much at black self-delusion and revolutionary pretension as at the surrounding racism of white society... a rich, raucous, hilarious, overdone porridge full of the various ingredients of the daily absurdist American spectacle" (New York Times)

"A thousand-miles-an-hour hoot" (Esquire)

"A dazzling satire of the African-American urban experience" (Patrick Neate Guardian)

Book Description

'Paul Beatty's stunning debut... Notions of race, politics, culture, youth, education, sport and sex are all undermined and re-assessed with swaggering confidence and eloquence' - Guardian
