‘Shockingly original’ The Times
‘A literary freestyler with brio to burn...scabrous and very funny’ Guardian
‘A no-holds-barred comedic romp’ Junot Diaz

After creating the perfect beat, DJ Darky goes in search of Charles Stone, aka the Schwa, a little known avant-garde jazzman, to play over his sonic masterpiece. His quest brings him to a recently unified Berlin, where he stumbles through the city's dreamy streets ruminating about race, sex, love, Teutonic gods and the Berlin Wall in search of his artistic – and spiritual – other.

Ferocious, bombastic and laugh-out-loud funny, Slumberland is the second novel from Man Booker-winner Paul Beatty, a comic genius at the top of his game.

Review:

‘What Gore Vidal did for sex and gender constructs, Beatty does for race and prominent black Americans, with sacred cow-tipping on nearly every page. Waterfalls of wordplay that pool and merge like acid jazz on the page.’ 

 

(Washington Post)

‘A remarkably strange and funny meditation...revelatory and mind-blowing.’

(Seattle Times)
