An American Mariage
'A moving portrayal of the effects of a wrongful conviction on a young African-American couple' (Barack Obama) 'It's among Tayari s many gifts that she can touch us soul to soul with her words.' (Oprah Winfrey) 'This is a marvellous feat of storytelling, told with the type of light touch that can only be achieved through hard work.' (The Guardian) 'Jones is very good with character, catching the whole texture of a life in a phrase or two...a vivid picture of how precarious respectable happiness still is for America's new black middle class.' (Sunday Times) 'Haunting...beautifully written.' (The New York Times Book Review) 'If you haven't read it yet, now is the time.' (Sunday Times Style) '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) 'Another incredible love story, though fraught with greater challenges for the couple at the centre, which makes the story all the more moving. Jones s prose is chock-full of lyricism, grace and wisdom. You will never forget the story of Celestial and Roy.' (Attica Locke,Observer) --Barack Obama
A wonderfully deep and moving novel...powerful and exciting. --Prof. Kate Williams, Chair of Judges, The Women's Prize for Fiction
'The story is a blend of thoughtful drama and social issues... Obama described it as "a moving portrayal of the effects of a wrongful conviction on a young African American couple.' --Independent
