it was amazing
bookshelves: best-book-evar

“It’s illegal to yell ‘Fire!’ in a crowded theater, right?”

“It is.”

“Well, I’ve whispered ‘Racism’ in a post-racial world.”

Unapologetically candid, brutally honest, painfully clever, and above all else, really frigging hilarious. It’s absurd how smart this book is, and absurd how absurd this book is.

I’d say The Sellout isn’t for everyone, but I think everyone should read it. If you’re not easily offended, you should read it. If you are easily offended, then you should definitely read it. Beatty pulls zero punches, gives zero fucks, and has created an absolute monster of modern social satire.
