  1. Have you gotten to reading The Sellout yet? It was one of my early 2017 reads, which I thoroughly enjoyed…in almost a sadistic way. The same sentences could make me laugh as much as they made me want to throw up and burn down the world. Thoughts on race at its finest.

    1. Yes! I loved it!! (In that embarrassed, uncomfortable way that’s especially good for me as a white lady.) It seemed like something so absurd couldn’t possibly be so poignant, yet the absurdity was the only way for it to make perfect sense?
