The Sellout is the winner of the 2016 Man Booker Prize, the 2015 National Book Critics Circle Award in Fiction, and was named a best books of the year by The New York Times Book Review and the Wall Street Journal. Paul Beatty is the author of three novels―Slumberland, Tuff, and The White Boy Shuffle―and two books of poetry: Big Bank Take Little Bank and Joker, Joker, Deuce.
