`A thousand-miles-an-hour hoot.' Esquire `Hilarious...and immensely moving.' The New Yorker `A blast of satirical heat from the talented heart of black American life.' New York Times White Boy Shuffle is Man Booker-winner Paul Beatty's electrifying debut novel about teenage-surf-bum Gunnar Kaufman who is forced to wise up when his mother moves from suburban Santa Monica to urban West Los Angeles. There, he begins to undergo a startling transformation from neighbourhood outcast to basketball superstar, and eventually to reluctant messiah of a `divided, downtrodden people'. A bombastic coming-of-age novel that has the uncanny ability to make readers want to laugh and cry at the same time,Beatty mingles horrific reality with wild fancy in this outlandish, laugh-out-loud funny and poignant vision of contemporary America.
