The Intuitionist: A Novel | Colson Whitehead
post image

One of my favorite Colson Whitehead novels is his debut about conflicting ideologies among elevator inspectors: the Empiricists and the Intuitionists. When an elevator at one of the buildings inspected by MC Lila Mae Watson, the city's first Black female elevator inspector, malfunctions she struggles to clear her name amidst racism & misogyny. Here Whitehead addresses social issues with a speculative bent, as he would in later works such as UR.

jlhammar Great pick! One of my favorites as well. 5mo

Loved reminiscing with Lillian Boxfish walking past places I've visited. Pic of the New York skyline from the Brooklyn side. Lucky to be headed back there next week.#Skyscraper #SavvySettings @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @Eggs

Although I prefer the ending of the book to the movie, I thoroughly enjoyed both of these and each features the main character in a #Skyscraper.

Eggs Well done 🏙 5mo
