“An American Marriage” by Tayari Jones

5 stars

This is a story of a young successful, newly married couple in the modern South. Because of a series of unexpected circumstances, the husband is sentenced to 12 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. The independent, self-sufficient wife becomes very close to a male friend whom she has known since childhood. This threesome and racism are an intricate part of this compelling story.
