Back to All Events


On Feburary 26th, we gather to discuss, debate, drink about and around and dig into the winner of the 2016 Man Booker Prize, Paul Beatty's The Sellout. The book is on sale at Tres Gatos, and all are welcome to the book club.

Says Amanda Foreman, chair of the judges for the Man Booker Prize:

"The Sellout is one of those very rare books that is able to take satire, which is in itself a very difficult subject and not always done well, and it plunges into the heart of contemporary American society and, with absolutely savage wit, of the kind I haven't seen since Swift or Twain, both manages to eviscerate every social taboo and politically correct, nuanced, every sacred cow, and while both making us laugh, making us wince. It is both funny and painful at the same time and it is really a novel of our times."

It promises to be a funny, insightful, controversial and memorable book club, and we hope to see you all there!
