$160.00

Colson Whitehead’s The Underground Railroad is a grand metaphor, an ingenious conception, and a riveting narrative. It describes the protagonist Cora’s escape from slavery through a literal underground railroad. It is at once historical fiction, science fiction, and literary fiction, yet no part of the novel seems misplaced in terms of genre. Critics agreed, awarding Whitehead the Pulitzer Prize, the Arthur C. Clarke Award, and the National Book Award. Readers enjoyed the work, too, launching it to the top of the bestseller lists for many months. Perhaps no novel touches on such disturbing history in such inventive ways. It solidified Whitehead’s place among the best living authors.

This first edition, first printing is in near fine condition. It is signed by the author on the title page. In the original cloth spine and boards, fine. Text block fine. In the original dust jacket, near fine with only minor rubbing to corners and rubbing to front flap.

A near fine signed first edition of Colson Whitehead’s best work.
