Tuff by Paul Beatty

Book Description

As fast-paced and hard-edged as the Harlem streets it portrays," "Tuff" "shows off all of the amazing skill that Paul Beatty showed off in his first novel, The White Boy Shuffle. Weighing in at 320 pounds, Winston Tuffy Foshay, is an East Harlem denizen who breaks jaws and shoots dogs and dreams of millions from his idea "Cap n Crunch: The Movie," starring Danny DeVito. His best friend is a disabled Muslim who wants to rob banks, his guiding light is an ex-hippie Asian woman who worked for Malcolm X, and his wife, Yolanda, he married from jail over the phone. Shrewdly comical as this dazzling novel is, it turns acerbically sublime when the frustrated Tuffy agrees to run for City Council. Smartly irreverent and edgily fierce, Tuff is a bona fide original."
