The Man Booker Prize for Fiction 2016

THE SELLOUT by Paul Beatty has been awarded the 2016 Man Booker Prize for Fiction. The 54-year-old New York resident, born in Los Angeles, is the first American author to win the prize in its 48-year history. US authors became eligible in 2014. THE SELLOUT is a searing satire on race relations in contemporary America. It is described by The New York Times as a "metaphorical multicultural pot almost too hot to touch," while the Wall Street Journal called it a "Swiftian satire of the highest order. Like someone shouting fire in a crowded theatre, Mr. Beatty has whispered 'Racism' in a postracial world."
