Join acclaimed poet and author Paul Beatty for a reading from his new novel, The Sellout, a compelling and timely contemplation of race politics and bureaucracy, which Sam Lipsyte calls a “spectacular explosion of comic daring, cultural provocation, brilliant, hilarious prose, and genuine heart.”

In conversation with The Paris Review’s Lorin Stein.

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. He is the editor of Hokum: An Anthology of African-American Humor. He lives in New York City.
