Winner of the Pulitzer PrizeColson Whitehead confirms his position as a phenomenal writer with this ostensibly heartbreaking and harrowing fictional storytelling but which is informed by the darkest most shameful and ugliest period of American history explored through the lives of two young boys set in the early 1960s Civil Rights time and all the horrors of the Jim Crow era in Frenchtown segregated Tallahassee Florida Whitehead writes in understated and subtly nuanced prose all the effective in delivering its relentless and emotionally hard hitting punches that live on in the memory long after the reader has finished reading the book Elwood Curtis is a bright and hardworking boy who lives with his beloved and strict grandmother who keeps him on the straight and narrow He is caught by the fire and ideals of Martin Luther King s spiritual rhetoric and philosophy and the fight for emancipation believing in the euality of everyoneExcited by the thought of attending a local black college the innocent Elwood s life is to fall apart when he is sent to the evil hellhole that is The Nickel Academy a segregated juvenile reform school run by the unbearably cruel and sadistic Maynard Spencer Elwood is to find himself in a racist place that has no interest in educating or improving the lives of the young men and where everyday life reeks of despair misery and never ending horrors Vicious brutality sexual abuse torture repression corruption disappearing boys and death are rife as Elwood struggles to maintain King s higher ideals of love trust and freedom in the face of his and his friend Turner s realities Turner has a cynical and jaundiced picture of the world he sees believing Elwood to be naive as he plots and schemes trying to avoid as much trouble as possible The boys futures are to be shaped by their experiences and what they have seen and Elwood is living in New York when a traumatic past that refuses to lie down returns into his lifeThe Nickel Academy is based on an actual reform school with its graveyard in Marianna Florida and interspersed in the narrative are uotes from the actual traumatised survivors of the place along with uotes from King himself Whitehead s novel is not only a scathing indictment of the likes of The Nickel Academy but of aspects of American society that allowed the existence of the reform school and the evil within and as such bear responsibility for what happened there but pertinently the political and social structures that legitimised such horrors and the wider racism and discrimination Whitehead shines a powerful light on American history the shadows of which have never gone away and which are undeniably present in our contemporary world A superb novel that is a must read of justice and injustice and which I feel is destined to become a classic in the future Highly recommended Many thanks to Little Brown for an ARC
