Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, and a #1 New York Times bestseller, The Underground Railroad chronicles a young slave’s escape to freedom in the antebellum South. In Whitehead’s conception, the Underground Railroad is no mere metaphor—engineers and conductors operate a secret network of tracks and tunnels beneath the Southern soil. As Whitehead re-creates historical terrors, his narrative seamlessly weaves the saga of America from the importation of Africans to the unfulfilled promises of the present day.
