Book Review: An American Marriage

 

 

From the Back Cover:

This stirring love story is an insightful look into the hearts and minds of three people who are at once bound and separated by forces beyond their control. An American Marriage is a masterpiece of storytelling, an intimate look into the souls of people who must reckon with the past while moving forward—with hope and pain—into the future.

My Review:

Loved it! I was drawn in from the first few pages. Told in a homespun yet elegant way this novel attempts to capture the plight of the black man and “American” marriages. This novel evoked so many emotions and was a quick, yet thought provoking read. I think this novel would be particularly good for book clubs as it deals with numerous topics that might facilitate dialogue including racism, sexism, marriages, and infidelity.
