This copy of "The Sellout" has been SIGNED by Paul Beatty on the title page! "The Sellout" showcases a comic genius at the top of his game. A biting satire about a young man's isolated upbringing and an appeal of a race trial that sends him to the Supreme Court, it challenges the sacred tenets of the U.S Constitution, urban life, the civil rights movement, the father-son relationship, and the holy grail of racial equality - the Black Chinese restaurant. A powerful novel of vital import, "The Sellout" is an outrageous and outrageously entertaining indictment of our time. Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award and the first American author to be named Winner of the MAN Booker Award. Scarce in a first printing - this is a beautiful copy without any remainder markings. This copy was signed by Paul Beatty from his appearance at Princeton University on February 8, 2017.
