Hell of a Book Synopsis

'Hilarious and moving' JONATHAN EVISON 'This novel twisted me up and turned me inside out' CHARLES YU 'When you're reading this, you can't help but feel like you're in on an inside joke that keeps on getting funnier. Jason Mott truly has written one hell of a book.' CANDICE CARTY-WILLIAMS, author of QUEENIE A NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST 2021 AN ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY 'MUST READ' A TODAY SHOW BOOK CLUB PICK * * * * * Discover this astonishing work of fiction from NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Jason Mott. THIS IS A TRUE STORY. An author goes on a book tour for his new bestseller Hell of a Book - which, as people keep telling him, is one hell of a book. THIS IS A COMING-OF-AGE STORY. One morning, he meets The Kid - a young Black boy who looks just like the one on the news who was shot by the police. And The Kid wants him to tell his story. THIS IS A SAD STORY. It's the story of a boy who spent most of his life trying to hide, and to not be seen. And it may not be that different from the story of our author. THIS IS A LOVE STORY. But to find out why, you'll have to read it for yourself. THIS IS A STORY UNLIKE ANYTHING YOU'VE EVER READ. THIS IS A HELL OF A BOOK. * * * * * 'An extraordinary emotional roller coaster of a read - I tore through this profoundly moving novel in a day but have been thinking about it ever since.' Abi Dare, author of The Girl with the Louding Voice 'In increasingly intertwining narratives, a Black novelist with a penchant for noir dialogue and a shaky grip on reality tours his debut novel; a boy, bullied for his dark skin, comes of age' Vanity Fair 'Playful, searching, raw and necessary, this writing, this voice, this novel twisted me up and turned me inside out, dazzled me, surprised me and moved me.' Charles Yu, author of Interior Chinatown 'A beautiful and deeply moving book - I'd go so far as to say it's an important book and everyone should read it' Imran Mahmood 'How to possibly describe this novel without simply borrowing from its moniker? It is, after all, a hell of a book' Entertainment Weekly
