The latest book by Washington University alumnus and former Performing Arts Department student Ben H. Winters (A.B. '98), Underground Airlines, was recently reviewed favorably in The New York Times. Already the American Booksellers Association Top Book for July and in development for a television adaptation, the review hails it a "chilling new thriller" and praises its inventive plot about a slave hunter who, in a contemporary United States where the Civil War never took place, is himself an escaped slave.
