“I know I have a novel when I have a situation where the characters disagree, but nobody is wrong ... when you write a novel, you have to come from a place of moral ambiguity.”

Winner of the Women’s Prize for Fiction, An American Marriage (Oneworld) is a thrilling depiction of the American Dream in freefall. Barack Obama (no less) has called it ‘a moving portrayal of the effects of a wrongful conviction on a young African-American couple’.

Tayari Jones was in conversation about the book, her fourth novel, with Cathy Rentzenbrink, whose memoir The Last Act of Love was shortlisted for the Wellcome Book Prize.
