The visit will prove less than successful, and a terrible miscarriage of Justice will occur that will detail their young lives and marriage.

    These are characters to that one wants to root for, wants things to turn out well for them. Of course, life seldom works that way, things change, circumstances beyond ones control int

    I liked but didn't love this story of a marriage in the newly crowned Oprah Book Club pick (I had started it the day before it was announced!)

    Liked - the setting (Atlanta for the most part) and how the characters are products of the complex class system of Atlanta neighborhoods, ideas of the "people you come from" and what that means or doesn't mean, the realistic portrayal of a marriage and what happens when a major challenge comes along, the look at black incarceration and the question of just

    4.5 for this novel, an Oprah book selection! Oprah has never let me down with her book choices!

    A terrible racial injustice has occurred that rips apart the marriage of a black couple, Roy and Celestial after only a year of marriage. The storytelling is stellar and the characters are just so real.

    Very moving! Recommended!

    An American Marriage by Tayari Jones is a 2018 Algonquin Books publication.

    Well drawn characterizations and a thought provoking and timely topic combines to make a potent blend, which kept me riveted to the pages of this book.

    Roy had done everything right, is successful, married to a beautiful woman, living the American dream- until he is falsely accused of rape and sent to prison.

    Celestial finds her comfortable life turned on its axis after Roy is incarcerated. She remains loyal to her husban

    it's probably far too late in the month to be of use to anyone making black history month displays, but i made this list over on riffle if anyone's interested, because even if you're not entrusted with display-making, it's a handy list of books for reading any month of the year:

  • Lindsay - Traveling Sister

    4 stars! This was a beautifully written, thought-provoking, slow burn novel that crept its way into my heart, settling deep within my bones. I will be thinking of these characters long after finishing this book.

    This story follows Roy and Celestial, a young newlywed couple who have a passionate and impetuous relationship – loving deeply and arguing stubbornly. They are from different “worlds”, but have found an explosive love and connection with one another. Less than two years after getting marr

    An American Marriage is one of those novels where everything just works. Vivid and well-developed characters, a good use of setting, interesting story, enough plot twists to keep things moving, timely and well-placed commentary on several aspects of life in the United States. I went back and forth on how I wanted this to turn out; it seemed like everyone had a good point! I appreciated that the author herself refused to take sides and refused to idealize anyone, and ultimately I was satisfied wi ...more

    I decided to pick up An American Marriage because Tayari Jones has a fun instagram. Also in her By The Book in the New York Times she recounts that she once accepted a gig in Dubai just because the flight gave her nineteen uninterrupted hours of reading time. I love that. She seems like such a fun and likeable person. Therefore it really does hurt to write that An American Marriage savagely disappointed me.

    The novel concerns a married couple, Roy and Celestial, who live a fairly normal life unti
