Slumberland : From the Man Booker prize-winning author of The Sellout Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


'Shockingly original' The Times'A literary freestyler with brio to burn...scabrous and very funny' Guardian'A no-holds-barred comedic romp' Junot DiazAfter creating the perfect beat, DJ Darky goes in search of Charles Stone, aka the Schwa, a little known avant-garde jazzman, to play over his sonic masterpiece.

His quest brings him to a recently unified Berlin, where he stumbles through the city's dreamy streets ruminating about race, sex, love, Teutonic gods and the Berlin Wall in search of his artistic - and spiritual - other. Ferocious, bombastic and laugh-out-loud funny, Slumberland is the second novel from Man Booker-winner Paul Beatty, a comic genius at the top of his game.
