An American Marriage

An American Marriage is THE book of 2018. This is the best dissection of a marriage to hit the page. Gloriously written – “but home isn’t where you land; home is where you launch”. Tayari Jones masterfully uses metaphors-“The stream beside us was clear; the water gushed over smooth rocks, and twilight outlined the little waves with silver.” I loved every word and was swept away by the story of a husband wrongly arrested, sent away to jail for 12 years and how this impacts their marriage.
