Roxane Gay and Tayari Jones

Roxane Gay’s latest book is the memoir Hunger — “an amazing achievement in more ways than I can count,” wrote Ann Patchett. “When a wrenching past is confronted with wisdom and bravery, the outcome can be compassion and enlightenment — both for the reader who has lived through this kind of unimaginable pain and for the reader who knows nothing of it.” Tayari Jones’s new novel, American Marriage, is “a stunning, epic love story filled with breathtaking twists and turns, while bursting with realized and unrealized dreams,” wrote Edwidge Danticat. “An exquisite, timely and powerful novel that feels both urgent and indispensable.”
