The New York Times Best Sellers - Cora is a slave on a cotton plantation in Georgia. 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. 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.

Colson Whitehead gioca a carte da sempre. Piccole poste tra amici, perlopiú scrittori con cui vince facilmente grazie alla sua «faccia da poker». Quando «Grantland», una rivista sportiva, si offre di pagargli l'iscrizione alle World Series di Texas Hold'em di Las Vegas, capisce però che deve fare sul serio. Cosí si sottopone a un duro allenamento per resistere ai sette giorni di torneo che lo aspettano, alla tensione e ai buffet dei casinò. La nobile arte del bluff è il racconto della sua immersione in un mondo che finora abbiamo conosciuto solo tramite la Tv. E una riflessione, tanto caustica quanto divertente, sull'America di oggi, la depressione e il peso dei nostri fallimenti.

New York nach der Apokalyse: Es gibt nur noch zwei Sorten von Menschen, Nicht-Infizierte und Infizierte, die als Zombies ihr Unwesen treiben. In Zone One, dem südlichen Teil von Manhattan, soll Mark Spitz, ein Held von konkurrenzloser Mittelmäßigkeit, mit einem Trupp Zivilisten die Zombies bekämpfen und die Menschheit retten. Doch ist er vielleicht selbst schon einer von ihnen? Colson Whitehead hat eine grandiose Persiflage des Horror-Genres geschrieben, in der sich Trash-Talk mit feinstem Humor verbindet, ein Porträt der Megapole New York – wie sie werden könnte oder bereits schon ist.

John Henry is America’s best-known and most beloved African-American folk hero. I have chosen a phrase from the ballad of his life for the title of this book to emphasize the long experience that black people have had with technology in America, but also the ambiguity of that experience. In one sense John Henry exemplifies the familiar trope of the sheer physicality of the black male—all brawn and no brain—that Colson Whitehead calls in his wonderful novel John Henry Days ‘‘an ideal of black masculinity in a castrating country.’’1 At the same time, however, steel driving was a precise and delicate operation, demanding a high level of skill from both the driver and the shaker who held the bit. Whitehead vividly describes what could happen if either worker made a mistake: a new, young…
