2020 퓰리처상 수상작
"인간의 인내심과 존엄성, 그리고 구원에 대한 강렬한 이야기" _퓰리처상 위원회

퓰리처상 100년 역사상 이례적인 두 번의 수상!
2017 수상작 『언더그라운드 레일로드』에 이어
미국 고전으로 기록될 놀랍고도 아름다운 이야기

2020 퓰리처상을 수상한 콜슨 화이트헤드의 장편소설 『니클의 소년들』이 드디어 국내에 출간되었다. 2017년 『언더그라운드 레일로드』로 퓰리처상·앤드루카네기메달·아서클라크상 등 유수의 문학상을 휩쓸며 미국 문학을 선도하는 작가로 인정받은 콜슨 화이트헤드는 3년 만의 신작 『니클의 소년들』로 두 번째 퓰리처상을 수상하는 기념비적인 영예를 안았다. 100여 년의 퓰리처상 역사 가운데 두 번 이름을 올린 작가는 부스 타킹턴, 윌리엄 포크너, 존 업다이크 단 세 명뿐이다. 콜슨 화이트헤드는 이번 수상으로 역대 네 번째이자 아프리카계 미국인 최초의 더블 수상자가 되었다.

소설은 불의의 사건으로 감화원에 보내진 주인공 엘우드를 통해 짐 크로법 시대의 차별과 폭력을 조명하며 인간의 존엄성과 용기에 대해 이야기한다. 현실과 상상을 융합하는 탁월한 리얼리즘, 유려하면서도 힘 있는 필치는 문학이 주는 감동을 새삼 환기시킨다. “흠잡을 데 없는 언어와 놀라운 통찰력을 지닌 아름다운 소설”이라는 극찬을 받으며 커커스상과 오웰상을 수상한 『니클의 소년들』은 전미도서상, LA타임스 도서상 최종 후보에 오르고 〈타임〉 2010년대 최고의 소설 Top10, 〈퍼블리셔스 위클리〉 올해 최고의 책 Top10에 선정되었다. 미국 사회 깊숙이 자리한 차별에 경종을 울리는 『니클의 소년들』은 독자들의 마음에 깊은 울림을 남기며 21세기의 고전으로 자리매김할 것이다.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD FINALIST

ONE OF TIME MAGAZINE'S 10 BEST FICTION BOOKS OF THE DECADE

WINNER OF THE KIRKUS PRIZE

LONGLISTED FOR THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARD

LONGLISTED FOR THE ORWELL PRIZE FOR POLITICAL FICTION 2020 

In this bravura follow-up to the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award-winning #1 New York Times bestseller The Underground Railroad, Colson Whitehead brilliantly dramatizes another strand of American history through the story of two boys sentenced to a hellish reform school in Jim Crow-era Florida.
 
When Elwood Curtis, a black boy growing up in 1960s Tallahassee, is unfairly sentenced to a juvenile reformatory called the Nickel Academy, he finds himself trapped in a grotesque chamber of horrors. Elwood’s only salvation is his friendship with fellow “delinquent” Turner, which deepens despite Turner’s conviction that Elwood is hopelessly naive, that the world is crooked, and that the only way to survive is to scheme and avoid trouble. As life at the Academy becomes ever more perilous, the tension between Elwood’s ideals and Turner’s skepticism leads to a decision whose repercussions will echo down the decades.
 
Based on the real story of a reform school that operated for 111 years and warped the lives of thousands of children, The Nickel Boys is a devastating, driven narrative that showcases a great American novelist writing at the height of his powers.

WINNER OF THE 2020 PULITZER PRIZE FOR FICTION New York Times Bestseller Winner of The Kirkus Prize Chosen by Publishers Weekly as one of the 10 Best Books of the Year Longlisted for The National Book Award
A necessary read." President Barack Obama
This is a powerful book by one of America's great writers. . . . Without sentimentality, in as intense and finely crafted a book as you'll ever read, Whitehead tells a story of American history that won t allow you to see the country in the same way again." Toronto Star
Colson Whitehead continues to make a classic American genre his own. . . . The narration is disciplined and the sentences plain and sturdy, oars cutting into water. Every chapter hits its marks. . . . Whitehead comports himself with gravity and care, the steward of painful, suppressed histories; his choices on the page can feel as much ethical as aesthetic. The ordinary language, the clear pane of his prose, lets the stories speak for themselves. . . . Whitehead has written novels of horror and apocalypse; nothing touches the grimness of the real stories he conveys here" The New York Times
Inspired by a real school in Florida, The Nickel Boys is a haunting narrative that reinforces Whitehead's prowess as a leading voice in American literature." TIME
[The Nickel Boys] should further cement Whitehead as one of his generation's best." Entertainment Weekly
Were Whitehead s only aim to shine an unforgiving light on a redacted chapter of racial terrorism in the American chronicle, that would be achievement enough. What he is doing in his new novel, as in its immediate predecessor, is more challenging than that. . . . He applies a master storyteller s muscle. . . . The elasticity of time in The Nickel Boys feels so organic that only when you put the book down do you fully appreciate that its sweep encompasses much of the last century as well as this one. . . . A writer like Whitehead, who challenges the complacent assumption that we even fathom what happened in our past, has rarely seemed more essential. The New York Times Book Review
A masterpiece squared, rooted in history and American mythology and, yet, painfully topical in its visions of justice and mercy erratically denied . . . a great American novel." Maureen Corrigan, NPR.org
Whitehead's brilliant examination of America's history of violence is a stunning novel of impeccable language and startling insight." Publishers Weekly, starred review
Whitehead's magnetic characters exemplify stoicism and courage, and each supremely craftedscene smolders and flares with injustice and resistance, building to a staggering revelation. Inspired by an actual school, Whitehead's potently concentrated drama pinpoints the brutality and insidiousness of Jim Crow racism with compassion and protest. . . . A scorching work." Booklist, starred review
[A] stunning new novel. . . . The understated beauty of his writing, combined with the disquieting subject matter, creates a kind of dissonance that chills the reader. Whitehead has long had a gift for crafting unforgettable characters, and Elwood proves to be one of his best. . . . The final pages of the book are a heartbreaking distillation of the story that preceded them; it's a perfect ending to a perfect novel. The Nickel Boys is a beautiful, wrenching act of witness, a painful remembrance of an 'infinite brotherhood of broken boys,' and it proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Whitehead is one of the most gifted novelists in America today." NPR
Magnificent. . . . Whitehead's prose is meticulous; he nimbly shifts between the 1960s and present day, creating a fully fleshed-out picture of violence and (in)justice." Buzzfeed
Colson Whitehead's follow-up to The Underground Railroad is devastating and powerful, a harrowing novelization on another dark aspect of American history. . . . Never didactic, but always illuminating even in those darkest of places in our collective story The Nickel Boys is a brilliant, horrifying look into the legacy of Jim Crow, and the ways in which racism and oppression don't exist in defiance to the American Dream, but rather as its fuel." NYLON
[The Nickel Boys's] dialogue, the efficient character sketches and the unobtrusive but always-advancing plot are evidence of mature ability . . . spry and animated and seamed with dark humor . . . [with] a dazzling final twist that Mr. Whitehead stages with such casual skill that one only begins to unpack its meanings well after the book has ended. . . . The excellence of The Nickel Boys carries an added feeling of hope because it's evidence of a gradual, old-fashioned artistic progression that fewer and fewer writers are allowed the time to pursue. . . . The Nickel Boys demonstrate the versatile gifts of a writer who is rounding into mastery. The impression left is that Mr. Whitehead can succeed at any kind of book he takes on. He has made himself one of the finest novelists in America." The Wall Street Journal
Whitehead's new novel . . . is in many ways a continuation of his reassessment of African American history. But The Nickel Boys is no mere sequel . . . it's a surprisingly different kind of novel. . . . Whitehead reveals the clandestine atrocities of Nickel Academy with just enough restraint to keep us in a state of wincing dread. . . . It shreds our easy confidence in the triumph of goodness and leaves in its place a hard and bitter truth about the ongoing American experiment." The Washington Post
Again [Whitehead is] wrestling with American history's reverberations. . . . Since its moral concern is multigenerational anguish, the sense of mourning in The Nickel Boys is subvisceral not detached, but restrained. . . . We are called to remember, 'The past is never dead. It's not even past.'" O: The Oprah Magazine
Possibly the single most anticipated novel of the year." Los Angeles Times
A powerful meditation on suffering and injustice. . . . His subject could not be more demanding, but Whitehead's writing is spare and stately. He handles Elwood's and Turner's suffering and questions gently. And he holds the reader carefully. . . . For the darkest of tales, that is the most a writer can do." Winnipeg Free Press
Whitehead's signature knack for creating unforgettable characters and spinning compelling stories out of even the darkest places is on display once again and while it's not always an easy story to read, we'd venture to say it's essential." Town and Country
If you thought Colson Whitehead's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Underground Railroad was a tour de force, wait until you get your hands on The Nickel Boys." Harper s Bazaar
The Nickel Boys is straight-ahead realism, distinguished by its clarity and its open conversation with other black writers: It quotes from or evokes the work of Langston Hughes, James Baldwin, Ralph Ellison and more. Whitehead has made an overt bid to stand in their company to write a novel that s memorable, and teachable, for years to come. The Nickel Boys is its fulfilment." USA Today
The Nickel Boys is a strictly realist work, albeit still ripe with Whitehead's signature deadpan wit. . . . The heart of The Nickel Boys is this extended dialogue between Elwood and Turner . . . [and] often feels like Whitehead s conversation with both the idealistic forerunners of the civil rights generation and, by implication, the woke youth of today. Like perhaps his single greatest influence, Ralph Ellison, Whitehead negotiates a tightrope walk between the need to depict the experience of race and racism and a stubborn individualistic resistance to the claims of collective identity." Slate
[Whitehead's] prose here is elegant yet straightforward . . . these short sentences spur the action on, creating a pace that's almost as breath-taking as the novel's depiction of cruelty. . . . Whitehead's novel is certainly revelatory, but more for the ways in which it traces these atrocities to the past and present, weaving tragedy into multiple lifetimes. The Nickel Boys isn't just a testament to systemic racism; it s an archaeology of pain." A.V. Club
[The Nickel Boys is] a marvellous play between the real situation and a novelistic artifice one which, in the end, proves to be inherent in the human story. . . . This is a heartbreakingly good novel. Its excellence doesn't lie in the attitude it takes to a social problem. . . . Rather, this is a book which should last because of the elegant refinement of its treatment, and the harmonious and deeply affecting balance it strikes between real-life conditions, and the requirements of the finest and most penetrating art." The Spectator
[A] remarkable novel." Roxane Gay, bestselling author of Bad Feminist
A gripping and brilliant novel based on a true story about a boys' reformatory school in Florida in the 1960s. Whitehead is one of the most daring and gifted authors writing these days, and I will never miss one of his books." Elizabeth Gilbert, author of City of Girls
[Whitehead] is a splendidly talented writer, with more range than any other American novelist currently working he can be funny, lyrical, satirical, earnest whatever is needed by the work." George Saunders, author of Lincoln in the Bardo,
