Surprise winner at Toronto Film Festival is “American Fiction”

[quote]It is a scathing satire on the publishing industry and its treatment of serious works by Black writers, one whose name is Thelonious “Monk” Ellison who with the made-up name Sinatra Golden decides to give them a stereotyped book “We’s Lives In Da Ghetto” as a protest but is horrified when it becomes a best seller.

This sounds like a plot the DL would have made up!
