    Sekstenårige Cora er slave på en bomuldsplantage i Georgia. Hun lever i daglig angst for fornedrelse, men også med myten om sin mor, Mabel, der flygtede og klarede den. Cora og hendes ven, markslaven Cæcar, begiver sig ud på den dødsensfarlige flugt, men den fanatiske slavejæger, Ridgeway, som Mabel slap fra dengang, sætter nu alt ind på at fange hendes datter og smadre det netværk af mennesker, som hjælper de bortløbne. På sin rejse nordpå skal Cora ikke kun overliste Ridgeway og hans blodhunde, men også undgå alle de andre slavejægere, stikkere og lynchgrupper, der huserer på ruten. Den underjordiske jernbane er en hårrejsende spændende roman om en ung kvindes næsten dyriske vilje til at overleve, og samtidig er det en banebrydende litterær præstation i sin beskrivelse af den mest brutale periode i amerikansk historie. Om forfatteren: Colson Whitehead er en af USA’s mest anerkendte skønlitterære forfattere. Han har skrevet en række prisbelønnede bestsellerromaner, og i 2001 blev han første gang nomineret til Pulitzer-prisen for sin roman John Henry Days. Den underjordiske jernbane blev hans store internationale gennembrud, og romanen sikrede ham i 2016 både Pulitzer-prisen og National Book Award. Den er desuden belønnet med The Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence, Goodreads Choice Award for bedste historiske roman og The Tournament of Books. Colson Whitehead er født og opvokset i New York City og bor i dag på Manhattan. ...en vinderbog...

    Forfatteren bag Den Underjordiske Jernbane er tilbage! Elwood Curtis er fast besluttet på at blive til noget. Han er optaget af sin skole og tro mod Dr. Martin Luther Kings kamp for sorte amerikaneres rettigheder gennem fredelig modstand. Men i de amerikanske tresseres raceadskilte Sydstater skal der næsten ingenting til for at en ung sort mand kommer på den forkerte side af loven, og med ét ændrer alt sig: pludselig skal Elwood ikke længere på college, og i stedet føres han til Nickel Academy, en opdragelsesanstalt som påstår at gøre ”hæderlige, ærlige mænd” af drenge på afveje. I virkeligheden er Nickel Academy et mareridt, hvor enhver der sætter sig det mindste imod stedets depraverede autoriteter risikerer ”en tur ud bagved”. Elwood forsøger desperat at holde fast i Dr. Kings næstekærlige idealer, mens hans nye ven og medindsatte, Turner, mener at Elwood er naiv og verden korrumperet, og eneste måde at overleve på er at spejle undertrykkernes ondskab og kynisme. Og da Elwoods idealer og Turners kynisme endelig kolliderer, får det livslange konsekvenser for dem begge. Drengene fra Nickel er en knusende koncis og modig roman af en af vor tids allerstørste amerikanske forfattere, hvis klarsynede og inderligt menneskelige fortællinger kaster lys på vores egen fragmenterede samtid. ”Genial.” New York Times Book Review ”Enestående, og hjerteknusende.” Newsday ”USA’s største historiefortæller.” Times Magazine ”Med denne bog har Whitehead gjort sig til en af Amerikas fremmeste forfattere.” Wall Street Journal ”Stærk og velkomponeret.” The Guardian ”Drengene fra Nickel er fiktion, men romanen gløder med sandhedens uhyrlige ild.” The New Republic

All the slaves lead a hellish existence, but Cora has it worse than most; she is an outcast even among her fellow Africans and she is approaching womanhood, where it is clear even greater pain awaits. When Caesar, a slave recently arrived from Virginia, tells her about the Underground Railroad, they take the perilous decision to escape to the North.In Whitehead's razor-sharp imagining of the antebellum South, the Underground Railroad has assumed a physical form: a dilapidated box car pulled along subterranean tracks by a steam locomotive, picking up fugitives wherever it can. Cora and Caesar's first stop is South Carolina, in a city that initially seems like a haven. But its placid surface masks an infernal scheme designed for its unknowing black inhabitants. And even worse: Ridgeway, the relentless slave catcher sent to find Cora, is close on their heels. Forced to flee again, Cora embarks on a harrowing flight, state by state, seeking true freedom.At each stop on her journey, Cora encounters a different world. As Whitehead brilliantly recreates the unique terrors for black people in the pre-Civil War era, his narrative seamlessly weaves the saga of America, from the brutal importation of Africans to the unfulfilled promises of the present day. The Underground Railroad is at once the story of one woman's ferocious will to escape the horrors of bondage and a shatteringly powerful meditation on history.

    Den dobbelte Pulitzerprisvinder er tilbage med en sprudlende og vildt underholdende fortælling om røveri, pengeafpresning og småsvindlere i begyndelsen af 1960'ernes Harlem.Carney var lovlydig i den forstand, at han ikke var så kriminel igen …For kunderne og naboerne på 125th street er Carney en respektabel møbelhandler, der gør sit bedste for at forsørge sig selv og sin familie. Han venter sit andet barn med konen Elizabeth, og selvom hendes stræbsomme forældre hverken bryder sig om Carney eller hans trange lejlighed med udsigt til højbanen, så føles det alligevel som hjem.Kun få kender til hans forbindelser til den mere skumle del af uptown Manhattan, og hans facade af normalitet har mere end bare et par ridser.Pengene er små, så hvis Freddy, Carneys fætter, en gang imellem afleverer en halskæde eller to, spørger Carney ikke, hvor den kommer fra. Han kender en diskret juveler downtown, som heller ikke stiller spørgsmål.Men en dag falder Freddy i kløerne på en flok småforbrydere, der vil plyndre Hotel Theresa, Harlems svar på Waldorf Astoria. Dét går ikke helt eft er planen – det gør det sjældent, og pludselig er Carneys hverdag befolket af gangstere, lyssky politibetjente og andre suspekte typer, deriblandt mafi abossen Chink Montague.Harlem Shuffle er en familiehistorie maskeret som spændingsroman, en røverhistorie, en roman om racisme og magt og – ikke mindst – et kærlighedsbrev til New Yorks mest berømte bydel, Harlem.

    Verticality, architectural and social, is at the heart of Colson Whitehead's first novel that takes place in an unnamed high-rise city that combines twenty-first-century engineering feats with nineteenth-century pork-barrel politics. Elevators are the technological expression of the vertical ideal, and Lila Mae Watson, the city's first black female elevator inspector, is its embattled token of upward mobility.When Number Eleven of the newly completed Fanny Briggs Memorial Building goes into deadly free-fall just hours after Lila Mae has signed off on it, using the controversial 'Intuitionist' method of ascertaining elevator safety, both Intuitionists and Empiricists recognize the set-up, but may be willing to let Lila Mae take the fall in an election year.As Lila Mae strives to exonerate herself in this urgent adventure full of government spies, underworld hit men, and seductive double agents, behind the action, always, is the Idea. Lila Mae's quest is mysteriously entwined with existence of heretofore lost writings by James Fulton, father of Intuitionism, a giant of vertical thought. If she is able to find and reveal his plan for the perfect, next-generation elevator, the city as it now exists may instantly become obsolescent.

    From the #1New York Timesbestselling author ofThe Underground RailroadColson Whitehead's triumphant novel is on one level a multifaceted retelling of the story of John Henry, the black steel-driver who died outracing a machine designed to replace him. On another level it's the story of a disaffected, middle-aged black journalist on a mission to set a record for junketeering who attends the annual John Henry Days festival. It is also a high-velocity thrill ride through the tunnel where American legend gives way to American pop culture, replete with p. r. flacks, stamp collectors, blues men , and turn-of-the-century song pluggers. John Henry Days is an acrobatic, intellectually dazzling, and laugh-out-loud funny book that will be read and talked about for years to come.
