Tuff by Paul Beatty

Book Description

From the author of the 2016 Man Booker Prize winner The Sellout comes a novel as fast-paced and hard-edged as the Harlem streets it portrays. Age nineteen and 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. He s funny and fierce, frustrated and feared. And when Tuff decides to run for City Council, this dazzling novel goes from profoundly funny to acerbically sublime.Populated with an incisively hilarious supporting case and filled with meaning and irreverent, Tuff is satire at its hard-edged best."
