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.
