Paul Beatty, author of The Sellout, was the first American to be awarded the Man Booker Prize. The story follows an urban farmer who tries to spearhead a revitalisation of slavery and segregation in a fictional Los Angeles neighbourhood. Beatty joins Sri Lankan writer Anuk Arudpragasam (The Story of a Brief Marriage), Australian writer Maxine Beneba Clarke (The Hate Race) and one of Sydney Writers’ Festival's’ key curators, Ellen van Neerven, to talk about race in today’s literary landscape.
