Fri, 29 October 8:00pm

A double bill of young, passionate and talented New York authors each writing with distinctive style and energy.  Mateo Askaripour’s Black Buck is a crackling satirical debut novel about a young man given a high risk shot at stardom as the lone Black salesman at a mysterious, cult-like, and wildly successful startup.   Jason Mott’s Hell of a Book fizzes with playful invention and intelligence following an unnamed writer beset by troubling visions on a surreal book tour in the midst of social and political upheaval.  Powerful, timely, provocative and unflinching these are books getting to the heart of racism for Black Americans.

Dr Yvonne Battle-Felton is a writer and Lecturer in Creative Writing and Creative Industries at Sheffield Hallam University
