Author Paul Beatty has won the Man Booker Prize, becoming the first American author to win the prestigious literary award. His book,The Sellout, is a satirical look at race relations in the US. The chair of this year's judging panel, historian Amanda Foreman told The Guardian of Beatty's often discomforting read,

"Fiction should not be comfortable. The truth is rarely pretty and this is a book that nails the reader to the cross with cheerful abandon … that is why the novel works.

"While you're being nailed, you're being tickled. It is highwire act which he pulls off with tremendous verve and energy and confidence. He never once lets up or pulls his punches. This is somebody writing at the top of their game." Read more at The Guardian.
