The Nickel Boys

If you’ve never read any of Colson Whitehead’s previous books, this is a fine one to start with. Based on the real story of the Dozier Reform School in Florida, a miscarriage of justice sentences the main character to the “care” of The Nickel School and its staff. This is not just about brutality and racism in the 1960s as recent events in the US have shown. Deserved winner of the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
