The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead

Sevenoaks 2020 Book of the Year


This book completely blew me away. How a life can change direction, tipping irretrievably off course by the merest thing. It’s magnificent and utterly devastating – horror and heartbreak told in the clearest prose. I’m so glad I read it, I’ll never forget it.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction 2020




‘The Nickel Boys’ is Colson Whitehead’s follow-up to the Pulitzer Prize- and National Book Award-winning bestseller ‘The Underground Railroad’, in which he dramatises another strand of United States history, this time through the story of two boys sentenced to a stretch in a hellish reform school in Jim-Crow-era Florida.
