An American Marriage - Tayari Jones

Staff Pick

Celestial and Roy seem to have the ideal “Spelhouse” marriage until Roy is convicted of a crime he did not commit. Once Roy is released from prison, Celestial must figure out if she is going to restart her life with him, or continue her relationship with her childhood friend, Andre. The impact of the criminal justice system on their marriage makes this story not just a love triangle, but one that is painfully American, leaving each character to live with a problem they did not create.
