I have a 1965 copy of The Autobiography of Malcolm X published by Grove Press. The copyright page states "tenth printing" but the dust jacket flap is marked "book club edition" and it has the original 7.50 price intact as well. My question is; Is there such a thing as the tenth printing of the book club edition for this particular title or is it a tenth printing that someone married to a book club edition dust jacket?
Novelist Paul Beatty Is First American To Win Britain's Man Booker Prize
For the first time, an American has won the Man Booker Prize, Britain's most coveted literary award. Paul Beatty will take home the award and the purse, 50,000 pounds (about $61,000), for his novel The Sellout, a satire about race in the U.S. Amanda Foreman, chair of the judges, called the book "a novel for our times," and said Beatty "slays sacred cows with abandon and takes aim at racial and political taboos with verve and a snarl."
The Man Booker judges chose a distinctly American story for its first American winner. The narrator of The Sellout is a black man from a small town on the outskirts of Los Angeles. The town is so down-and-out that it is being taken off the map. In response the narrator, known as Bonbon, re-instates both slavery and segregation in the town. Those moves land him at the Supreme Court where the books begins. At this evening's award ceremony in London, Beatty told the crowd that the book had been hard to write and he added, "I know it's hard to read." That may be true but it's also very funny. The Sellout has been called "a comic masterpiece."
