African-American author, Paul Beatty has become the first American to win the Man Booker Prize with his satirical novel, The Sellout.

The winner of the award – which accolades literature which is worthy of ‘recognition, reward and readership’ – was announced in London on 25 October. Beatty was overwhelmed and surprised by the win, declaring that prior to the win he hadn’t had ‘a ton of recognition’ but ‘had a ton of respect’. This was a gratifying moment for Beatty who affirmed that writing had ‘given’ him ‘a new life’.
