Paul Beatty, LA’s Best Bard?

When I opened my browned Paul Beatty manila file folder to prepare to interview the writer once again, I realized that it had been 25 years since I first introduced myself to him after seeing him read at the Poetry Project in the East Village. He was a great writer then, albeit of poetry rather than prose. He’s a brilliant novelist now. I caught up with Paul again to discuss the ribald satire of his latest book, The Sellout, for the Los Angeles Review of Books.
