A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER OPRAH'S BOOK CLUB 2018 SELECTION AND CHOSEN BY BARACK OBAMA AS ONE OF HIS FAVOURITE SUMMER READS OF 2018 Haunting...beautifully written.' The New York Times Book ReviewCompelling.' The Washington Post Epic...transcendent...triumphant.' ElleIt's among Tayari's many gifts that she can touch us soul to soul with her words.' Oprah Winfrey `Tayari Jones' vision, strength, and truth-telling voice have found a new level of artistry and power.' Michael Chabon, author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay Newlyweds Celestial and Roy are the embodiment of both the American Dream and the New South. He is a young executive, and she is an artist on the brink of an exciting career. But as they settle into the routine of their life together, they are ripped apart by circumstances neither could have imagined. Roy is arrested and sentenced to twelve years for a crime Celestial knows he didn't commit. Though fiercely independent, Celestial finds herself bereft and unmoored, taking comfort in Andre, her childhood friend, and best man at their wedding. As Roy's time in prison passes, she struggles to hold on to the love that has been her centre. When his conviction is suddenly overturned, he returns to Atlanta ready to resume their life together. This stirring love story is a profoundly insightful look into the hearts and minds of three people who are at once bound and separated by forces beyond their control. An American Marriage is a masterpiece of storytelling, an intimate look deep into the souls of people who must reckon with the past while moving forward - with hope and pain - into the future.
