“The best living American novelist” (Chicago Tribune), Colson Whitehead won the 2017 National Book Award, the Pulitzer Prize, and the Arthur C. Clarke Award for The Underground Railroad, by turns a fantastical and literal take on the famed escape system for enslaved people. His other work includes the novels The Intuitionist, John Henry Days, and Zone One, and the nonfiction works The Colossus of New York and The Noble Hustle. When The Nickel Boys won the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for fiction, the committee of judges described the book as "A spare and devastating exploration of abuse at a reform school in Jim Crow-era Florida that is ultimately a powerful tale of human perseverance, dignity and redemption."
