What is The Underground Railroad about?

Cora is an enslaved girl living on a plantation in Georgia in the antebellum South. Desperate for escape, she flees the plantation in the hope that the rumours of the Underground Railroad are true. What she finds is so much more. In Whitehead’s re-imagined version, the Underground Railroad is not made of hideouts and crawl spaces, but instead a real railroad operating entirely underground throughout the Southern states. Cora must navigate her way through the Railroad, avoiding bounty hunters, lynch-mobs and spies, to find a path to safety.
