    Tayari Jones, a professor of creative writing at Emory University in Atlanta, published three earlier novels, but it was An American Marriage that catapulted her to international acclaim. The book was a selection for Oprah Winfrey’s book club, a New York Times best-seller, and received the United Kingdom’s Women’s Prize for Fiction.   “An American Marriage” is a beautifully written book that not only takes an in-depth look at an American marriage that has been dealt a severe blow but also a racial injustice. Tayari Jones is the author of this novel.

      And since when Oprah’s Book Club was founded, she has endorsed just 9 books. We mention this because in February this year, the very same day the book was published, she revealed her first selection: Tayari Jones’ “An American Marriage,” a book described as “a love story warped by racial injustice.”.
