Fast Facts You Need To Know

2019

Whitehead’s seventh novel, The Nickel Boys, was published in July 2019. The novel was inspired by the real-life story of the Dozier School for Boys in Florida, where children convicted of minor offences suffered violent abuse. In conjunction with the publication of The Nickel Boys, Whitehead was featured on the cover of TIME Magazine for the July 8, 2019 edition, alongside the strap-line “America’s Storyteller”. The Nickel Boys won the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Judges of the prize called the novel “a spare and devastating exploration of abuse at a reform school in Jim Crow-era Florida that is ultimately a powerful tale of human perseverance, dignity and redemption.” It is Whitehead’s second win, making him the fourth writer in history to have won the prize twice.

2016

His 2016 novel, The Underground Railroad, was a selection of Oprah’s Book Club 2.0, and was also chosen by President Barack Obama as one of five books on his summer vacation reading list. In January 2017 it was awarded the Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction at the American Library Association Mid-Winter conference in Atlanta, GA. Colson was also honored with the 2017 Hurston/Wright Award for fiction presented by the Zora Neale Hurston/Richard Wright Foundation. The Underground Railroad won the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Judges of the prize called the novel “a smart melding of realism and allegory that combines the violence of slavery and the drama of escape in a myth that speaks to contemporary America.”

2015

In the spring of 2015, he joined The New York Times Magazine to write a column on language.

2014

Whitehead has since produced nine book-length works—seven novels and two non-fiction works, including a meditation on life in Manhattan in the style of E.B. White’s famous essay Here Is New York. The books are 1999’s The Intuitionist, 2001’s John Henry Days, 2003’s The Colossus of New York, 2006’s Apex Hides the Hurt, 2009’s Sag Harbor, 2011’s Zone One, a New York Times Bestseller; 2016’s The Underground Railroad, which earned a National Book Award for Fiction, and 2019’s The Nickel Boys. Esquire magazine named The Intuitionist the best first novel of the year, and GQ called it one of the “novels of the millennium.” Novelist John Updike, reviewing The Intuitionist in The New Yorker, called Whitehead “ambitious,” “scintillating,” and “strikingly original,” adding, “The young African-American writer to watch may well be a thirty-one-year-old Harvard graduate with the vivid name of Colson Whitehead.”

2011

His non-fiction account of the 2011 World Series of Poker The Noble Hustle: Poker, Beef Jerky & Death was published by Doubleday in 2014.
