A compelling and highly relevant story, Jones’s An American Marriage is a New York Times and Washington Post notable book, an Oprah Book Club 2018 selection, and has garnered much critical acclaim. “Powerful . . . The story . . . is both sweeping and intimate—at once an unsparing exploration of what it means to be black in America and a remarkably lifelike portrait of a marriage.” – The New Yorker
