「精彩卻令人心碎…讓人無法忘懷」─紐約時報書評

新婚的年輕夫妻Celestial和Ray都是非裔美國人,Celestial是年輕的藝術家,正開始要開展藝術家的生涯,Ray在某企業任職,雖年輕但已成為管理階層的一員,公司正要開始大鳴大放。

結婚一年多後,Ray卻因為一件沒有犯下的強暴案被判入獄十二年,Celestial相信Ray的清白,但丈夫入獄改變了她的世界,沒有想像到的痛楚、不安、擔憂就這樣發生在她身上,Ray的無奈、憤怒難以壓抑,透過信件溝通,兩夫妻的情緒從憤怒到無奈接受人生的安排。

Ray在獄中碰到長者獄友,給予他指引與意見,Celestial在獄外只能從好友Andre身上找尋借慰,但這樣的慰藉卻也慢慢變成依賴,她靠著以Ray樣貌的娃娃在藝術界闖出一點知名度,但這個沒有生命的娃娃卻無法真正陪伴她的人生,當Ray好不容易被釋放,準備回到亞特蘭大和Celestial一起過新生活,他們還能像以前一樣一起面對生活嗎?

作者講述婚姻問題、司法不公、美國種族歧視等議題,優美地寫出一段生活的掙扎,受到美國許多媒體好評。

OPRAH’S BOOK CLUB 2018 SELECTION

One of the most anticipated novels of 2018 according to Entertainment Weekly * Goodreads * Esquire * Elle * Cosmopolitan *BBC * Huffington Post * Bustle * Southern Living * Newsday * Bookish * Nylon * iBooks Store

“Transcendent . . . Triumphant . . . Gorgeous.”—Elle

“A stunning epic love story . . . An exquisite, timely, and powerful novel that feels both urgent and indispensable.”—Edwidge Danticat

Newlyweds Celestial and Roy are the embodiment of both the American Dream and the New South. He is a young executive, and she is an artist on the brink of an exciting career. But as they settle into the routine of their life together, they are ripped apart by circumstances neither could have imagined. Roy is arrested and sentenced to twelve years for a crime Celestial knows he didn’t commit. Though fiercely independent, Celestial finds herself bereft and unmoored, taking comfort in Andre, her childhood friend, and best man at their wedding. As Roy’s time in prison passes, she is unable to hold on to the love that has been her center. After five years, Roy’s conviction is suddenly overturned, and he returns to Atlanta ready to resume their life together.
 
This stirring love story is a profoundly 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 deep into the souls of people who must reckon with the past while moving forward--with hope and pain--into the future.
