Florida’s Shameful History
Following the success of The Underground Railroad – named by Barack Obama as one of the most important books of his presidency – new novel The Nickel Boys sees Pulitzer Prize winner Colson Whitehead visit 1960s Florida, a period of American history fraught with racial tension. We're delighted to welcome a giant of contemporary fiction to launch one of the outstanding books of 2019 with Kirsty Wark.
