Racial Justice Book Discussion

Hell of a Book by Jason Mott
In Jason Mott’s Hell of a Book, a Black author sets out on a cross-country publicity tour to promote his bestselling novel. That storyline drives Hell of a Book and is the scaffolding of something much larger and more urgent: Mott’s novel also tells the story of Soot, a young Black boy living in a rural town in the recent past, and The Kid, a possibly imaginary child who appears to the author on his tour.
This 2021 National Book Award winner for fiction tells the story of a Black writer’s cross-country book tour which becomes a profound exploration of love, friendship, and racial violence in America.
