Colson Whiteheads novel The Underground Railroad was awarded both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. It soon became a #1 New York Times Bestseller, it got picked by Oprah Winfrey for her book club, and the US President Obama chose it for his summer reading list. The book mixes the historical novel with allegory and sci-fi, as Whitehead tells the story of Cora, a 15-year-old slave who escapes from a plantation in Georgia. This haunting and inventive narrative gives an alternative history of the American slavery. This conversation between Whitehead and editor of the Norwegian Book magazine of Klassekampen, Karin Haugen, took place on August 24th, 2017.
