Every Book by Colson Whitehead

I just finished reading all of the books written by Colson Whitehead, winner of TWO Pulitzer Prizes; for Underground Railroad and The Nickel Boys. I spread these nine books out over about eighteen months. It was really interesting to read everything that a particular author has written (there was only one that I really didn’t care for). Most of Whitehead’s books address or at least include commentary on racism and discrimination, but always from an original and thought provoking angle.

If you are looking for a great book that will also make you think, you really cant go wrong with either of his two most popular: The Underground Railroad or Nickel Boys.

What do you think about this list? Have you read any of Whitehead’s books?

I LOVE spending time with my wife and three kids. We work to play. We love the outdoors and being able to travel. Some of our favorite trips have been to Chicago, Boston, Italy, Germany, and the Netherlands.
