The Sellout by Paul Beatty

An absolute delight to read. The book starts of in the hallowed halls of the US Supreme Court where our hero is on trial for re-introducing racial discrimination and taking a slave. Only our hero is a black man from LA who appears to be smoking pot in the court. What follows is a hilarious, thoughtful and tender treatise on issues of racial discrimination in the US. Thought provoking and laugh-out-loud funny.
