An American Marriage | Tayari Jones
post image

An American Marriage just won the 2019 Women‘s Prize for Fiction! I read this one early last year, thanks to #botm, and loved it. I read and enjoyed four of the six shortlisted books.

Which book did you want to win? #womensprizeforfiction

Theaelizabet I‘ve only read My Sister, the Serial Killer and Milkman and loved both, though Milkman will likely be my fiction BOTY. I hope to read the others. Would An American Marriage have been your choice? 3w
BarbaraBB I have to admit I‘m a bit disappointed. There were so many books I liked better on that list. 3w
Susannah Oooh, I'm hoping to get my book club to agree to read My Sister, the Serial Killer next month. (We read An American Marriage last year! Yay!) 3w

thebluestocking @Theaelizabet I liked MSTSK and Milkman too. And Circe. I think I would have picked Milkman out of the shortlist, but then it doesn‘t really need another award. 😉💙 3w
thebluestocking @BarbaraBB What were your favorites? I liked An American Marriage but probably would‘ve chosen several others before it. 3w
thebluestocking @Susannah MSTSK would make for an excellent book club discussion, I think! 💙 3w

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

All the stars for this one. I loved everything about it, but then I have always admired Pat Barkers style. She writes about the psychological effects of war with stunning clarity and unflinching honesty. This book was less about retelling a classic and more a woman‘s experience of slavery and war. Viewed through that lens I thought it was outstanding. I have not read many Woman‘s prize nominees yet but I hope this makes the shortlist.

Whoa...the ending alone is worth the price of admission! It's a beautiful story about love, loss, grief, family, loyalty, politics, & identity. It's multi-POV w/ the fates of 2 families entwined, & a compelling look at the competing priorities in the lives of British Muslims - a perspective I haven't read.
