An American Marriage: Tayari Jones and Cathy RentzenbrinkTuesday 20 August 2019, 9:15a.m. · 50 minutes
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.
