I don’t know who needs to hear this but just because a writer is AfAm it doesn’t mean they write urban fiction. If I ask for Westerns would you send me Margaret Atwood? Would you confuse Jackie Collins with James Patterson? So tell me what is urban about Colson Whitehead? https://t.co/sO3CVhCLC4

So far THE HEAP by Sean Adams reads like Colson Whitehead wrote it after playing the video game Donut County.

I realize this is a very niche comparison combo, hah! https://t.co/uGpeGzVHOq

remembering for no reason how Colson Whitehead's "The Underground Railroad" imagines all infrastructure as metaphor and all metaphor as infrastructure and that to "find the true face of America" we need to keep laying new track etc etc

Just read The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead. Superb! Elwood is a bright boy living in 1960’s segregated Florida. Horrendous fortune lands him in the notorious Nickel reform school. His naive idealism and faith in humanity is badly misplaced. A novel based on historical reality https://t.co/pcJPd3urXA
