Pressestimmen

""The Sellout" is brilliant. Amazing. Like demented angels wrote it." --Sarah Silverman"I am glad that I read this insane book alone, with no one watching, because I fell apart with envy, hysterics, and flat-out awe. Is there a more fiercely brilliant and scathingly hilarious American novelist than Paul Beatty?" --Ben Marcus"Paul Beatty has always been one of smartest, funniest, gutsiest writers in America, but "The Sellout "sets a new standard. It's a spectacular explosion of comic daring, cultural provocation, brilliant, hilarious prose, and genuine heart." --Sam Lipsyte"Beatty, author of the deservedly highly praised "The White Boy Shuffle "(1996), here outdoes himself and possibly everybody else in a send-up of race, popular culture, and politics in today's America . . . Beatty hits on all cylinders in a darkly funny, dead-on-target, elegantly written satire . . . ["The Sellout"] is frequently laugh-out-loud funny and, in the way of the great ones, profoundly thought provoking. A major contribution." --Mark Levin, "Booklist "(starred review)

"The first 100 pages of [Paul Beatty's] new novel, "The Sellout," are the most caustic and the most badass first 100 pages of an American novel I've read in at least a decade. I gave up underlining the killer bits because my arm began to hurt . . . [They] read like the most concussive monologues and interviews of Chris Rock, Richard Pryor and Dave Chappelle wrapped in a satirical yet surprisingly delicate literary and historical sensibility . . . The jokes come up through your spleen . . . The riffs don't stop coming in this landmark and deeply aware comic novel . . . [It] puts you down in a place that's miles from where it picked you up."--Dwight Garner "The New York Times "

"["The Sellout"] is among the most important and difficult American novels written in the 21st century . . . It is a bruising novel that readers will likely never forget."--Kiese Laymon "Los Angeles Times "

"Swiftian satire of the highest order . . . Giddy, scathing and dazzling."--Sam Sacks "The Wall Street Journal "

""The Sellout "isn't just one of the most hilarious American novels in years, it also might be the first truly great satirical novel of the century . . .

Powered by a wicked wit, with characters who speak a pop-philosopher patois, this is a funny and daring novel that subverts harmful cultural assumptions It s this deliberate subversion of harmful cultural assumptions that makes this daring and abrasive novel a joy to read the furthest thing imaginable from a selling out of anyone.

Klappentext

Born in Dickens on the southern outskirts of Los Angeles, the narrator of The Sellout spent his childhood as the subject in his father's racially charged psychological studies. He is told that his father's work will lead to a memoir that will solve their financial woes. But when his father is killed in a drive-by shooting, he discovers there never was a memoir. All that's left is a bill for a drive-through funeral.

What's more, Dickens has literally been wiped off the map to save California from further embarrassment. Fuelled by despair, the narrator sets out to right this wrong with the most outrageous action conceivable: reinstating slavery and segregating the local high school, which lands him in the Supreme Court.

In his trademark absurdist style, which has the uncanny ability to make readers want to both laugh and cry, The Sellout is an outrageous and outrageously entertaining indictment of our time. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Audio CD.

Format: Taschenbuch
A man is in Washington, waiting for his trial before the Supreme Court. He has never done anything wrong so why is there a case of the United States of America vs. himself? The narrator has to go back to his childhood days when he, the son of a black psychologist, was his father’s prime study object. His isolated upbringing always against the background of racial hated has left its marks and when is father is shot and he is faced with the police’s lack of interest, he understands that he has to do something for Dickens, his hometown which has vanished from the maps, and for his father’s memoir. A fight for equality and to find out who is really is and who he wants to be starts.

Paul Beatty’s novel has been shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2016 and it is obvious why it has been nominated. At the end of two terms of a black president, the country has to raise the question if anything has changed in the last eight years. Considering the last months’ riots and street fights in many cities between the police and the black community, the answer might be “no” – or even: things are worse today. Thus, Beatty has chosen his topic well, it could not fit more to the current debate. But apart from its societal relevance, what does the novel have to offer?

First of all, the irony is just captivating. The best example for me is the search for a sister city when Juárez, Chernobyl and Kinshasa refuse to be linked to Dickens due to diverse reasons. You have to laugh until the laughter gets stuck to your throat because you understand what has been said about this black town in this scene. Its situation close to the LA metropolis is worse than the most violent city in Norther America, worse than the most polluted and dead place in Europe and worse than the poorest town in Africa.

The book is hilarious and sobering at the same time, political satire at its best. It tackles American racism head on without hurling accusations at you. It is often said that white Americans cannot understand the experiences of African Americans. The book can give you a few clues.

‘The Sellout’ written by Paul Beatty is not a book in the classical sense – here there is no real plot and outcome, twists and turns, good guys and villains - but still it will entertain you completely with ambiguous sentences and excellent satire that is offered on its pages.

Starting from the first page, a satire that awaits you will knock your socks off – “This may be hard to believe, coming from a black man, but I’ve never stolen anything. Never cheated on my taxes or at cards. Never snuck into the movies or failed to give back the extra change to a drugstore cashier indifferent to the ways of mercantilism and minimum-wage expectations…” And in the same way the author continues his story, equally making hard for reader to stop laughing.

The main character, as already said, an honest black man is brought in front of the Supreme Court with charges of slavery man. The main character will tell whole story through the flashbacks about everything that led up to that moment. And not only he attempted to keep a slave, but he also want to again make segregation in his former black city, now mainly Hispanic community. And though may seem crazy when you read this, believe me it will be even more while reading his confession. But do not worry, this is not a story about some racist lunatic, all this is just top notch satire on American society.

Paul Beatty with his book managed to make book that will make you laugh almost non-stop, and I was sorry to come too fast to its ending. And though 300 pages seems a lot, the author succeeds in his satirical confessions not to repeat himself, again and again making you laugh while actually talking about a serious topic of racial intolerance. Therefore, though Beatty’s work may seem unserious, in fact this is unexpectedly great work that tackles many taboos and as such can certainly be recommended.

This is a book about race relations becoming an obsession. A bit weird after eight years of a black president in the US. There are interesting spikes, but overall it is quite convoluted, both in terms of story and language.
