Jason Mott’s "Hell of a Book" won The National Book Award in 2021. It is an astounding work of fiction where a Black author sets out on a publicity tour to promote his bestselling novel. The book - always deeply honest, at times electrically funny -- goes to the heart of racism, police violence, and the hidden costs exacted upon Black Americans and America as a whole.
