Tayari Jones interviewed by Brooke Warner

Few writers have captured the spirit of the American South—its heart, its small-town intimacy, its scars from centuries of institutional racism—like Tayari Jones. Jones has the power to “touch us soul to soul with her words,” said Oprah, who dubbed Jones’ newest book, “An American Marriage,” a Book Club pick for 2018. In her novels, Jones takes these scars, including traumas around wrongful incarceration, and rubs them raw, creating masterful works of fiction with the power to transform a reader. She is interviewed by Brooke Warner of She Writes Press.
