2016 National Book Award winner Colson Whitehead presents his NYT #1 bestseller and award-winning novel, The Underground Railroad. One of most talked about books of the year and Oprah’s Book Club 2016 selection, this magnificent tour de force follows a young slave’s harrowing and desperate flight toward freedom as she faces unique challenges at every stop of the railroad…an actual subterranean system of trains and tracks. The Underground Railroad is at once a kinetic adventure tale of one woman’s ferocious will to escape the horrors of bondage and a shattering, powerful meditation on the history we all share.
Colson Whitehead is the New York Times bestselling author of The Noble Hustle, Zone One, Sag Harbor, The Intuitionist, John Henry Days, Apex Hides the Hurt, and one collection of essays, The Colossus of New York. A Pulitzer Prize finalist and a recipient of MacArthur and Guggenheim fellowships, he lives in New York City.
