Oprah Winfrey announced the latest pick for her legendarily popular book club Tuesday: "An American Marriage," the new novel by Tayari Jones.
In a video on her website, Winfrey praised the novel, which she said "redefines the traditional American love story."
"It's one of those books I could not put down," Winfrey added. "And as soon as I did, I called up the author, and said, 'I've got to talk to you about this story.'"
Jones' novel, published by Algonquin Books, follows Atlanta newlyweds Roy and Celestial, a business executive and an artist, respectively. When Roy is falsely accused of a crime and imprisoned, his young wife begins spending time with Andre, an old friend who served as her husband's best man at their wedding.
