Review: Colson Whitehead with Kirsty Wark, EIBF 2019 | The Fountain
Another understandably sold-out Edinburgh International Book Festival event was one of the last of the final weekend, the hotly-anticipated, Kirsty Wark, in conversation with award-winning author, Colson Whitehead. Renowned for his successful with The Underground Railroad, which not only saw him win the 2016 National Book Award for Fiction, and if thats not enough, the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. And then on top of that, it was named by Barack Obama as one of the most important books of his presidency. So are we really surprised to witness Colson in packed-out room with his most latest offering, The Nickel Boys.
