LONDON—Paul Beatty has won the Man Booker Prize for fiction for The Sellout Man.

He is the first American novelist to take the prestigious literary award.

Judges said Beatty’s provocative book, a stinging satire of race and class in the United States, was as timely as the evening news.

Two Canadians had been in the running for the award, which comes with a cash prize of 50,000 pounds, or approximately $80,000 Canadian.

Vancouver-born, Montreal-based Madeleine Thien was a finalist for her novel Do Not Say We Have Nothing. Earlier on Tuesday, she was honoured with the Governor General’s Literary Award for fiction.

Montreal-born, Hungary-based author David Szalay was also nominated for All That Man Is.

The Sellout centres on Bonbon, an African-American man on trial at the Supreme Court for attempting to reinstate slavery and racial segregation.

Founded in 1969, the Man Booker Prize was previously open to writers from Britain, Ireland and the Commonwealth, but was expanded in 2014 to include all English-language authors.

The British literary award, which usually brings the victor a huge sales boost, is named after its sponsor, financial services firm Man Group PLC.
