An American Marriage


“This is a novel about marriage and about what we owe one another and what you can expect from another person.” Tayari Jones speaks about her fourth novel, An American Marriage (Algonquin Books, 2018), and what she loves about bookstores in this video for Barnes & Noble. Jones shares her experience at Ucross in “The Writers Retreats Where Big Books Are Born” in the March/April issue of Poets & Writers Magazine.


Why We Write: New York City


Kevin Larimer, editor in chief of Poets & Writers Magazine, leads a conversation with Edward Hirsch, Tayari Jones, Victor LaValle, Roxana Robinson, and Tiphanie Yanique about the personal, political, and professional reasons we choose to write while living in a culture, a family, or a community that doesn’t always value what we do.
