About Hell of a Book

Hell of a Book is a masterwork of balance, as Mott navigates the two narratives and their delicate tonal distinctions. A surrealist feast of imagination that’s brimming with very real horrors, frustrations and sorrows, it can break your heart and make you laugh out loud at the same time, often on the same page. This is an achievement of American fiction that rises to meet this particular moment with charm, wisdom and truth.”—BookPage (starred review)

Jason Mott

Hell of a Book is a timely and robust exploration of myriad forms of love and of the precariousness of being Black in America. Mott masterfully threads two seemingly disparate narratives—one fantastical, the other all too familiar—into a labyrinthian surrealist tale that is by turns farcical and heartrending, tragic and redemptive.”—Charleston Post and Courier
