“Jason Mott’s Hell of A Book is also a Hell of a good listen. Narrators JD Jackson and Ronald Peet bring “State College” and “Soot” to life in ways that leave echoes of their voices in listeners ears long after the final page.”Angela, The Country Bookshop

“Hell of a Book (the title of which is 100% truth in advertising) comprises two narratives: the madcap story of a hot new author on tour, spiraling his way down the sex- and alcohol-fueled drain of his life; and the somber tale of a dark-skinned boy and his search for safety in a world that has set him up for failure. As the two stories careen toward each other on an impossibly strange collision course, Mott asks some pretty big questions: What is the responsibility of a Black author in the era of Black Lives Matter? And/or what grace—what space—is owed to them? And what does all of that mean for the rest of us waiting to consume their stories? Mott's astonishing and adept novel captures both the absurdity and the Hell of a world where the darker one's skin, the more one has to fear from the police.”Rachel, The Book Table
