An American Marriage
An American Marriage, uses protagonists Celestial and Roy as figures to display all the issues related to contemporary marriage, including jobs, in-laws, children and what we do and fail to do for the other partner in a relationship. Roy’s unjust incarceration provides momentum for the plot, but where Jones soars in this novel is in how she makes the particular issues of one marriage universal. All relationships are complicated, and Jones lays out that complexity for all to see. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase An American Marriage from amazon.com.
