An American Marriage by Tayari Jones follows a newlywed couple as the husband is sent to prison for a wrongful conviction and the wife seeks comfort in the arms of a childhood friend. An instant New York Times bestseller and now an Oprah Book Club pick, An American Marriage has been called “a masterpiece of storytelling, an intimate look into the souls of people who must reckon with the past while moving forward-- with hope and pain-- into the future.” USA Today calls it “Brilliant and heartbreaking . . . Unforgettable.” Sponsored by the Fairfax Library Foundation.
