The plot of Jones's new book, An American Marriage, sounds all too familiar for followers of the news: An innocent African American man, Roy, is arrested for a crime he's not guilty of, and his imprisonment and degradation strain his relationship with his wife, Celestial. In an interview with Tin House, Jones hinted at her interest in the topic: "The idea of incarceration looming as just one misunderstanding away has always been part of my understanding of the world. As a matter of fact, writing this I always thought that this was the least interesting part of the story. [...] For me, the challenge lies in the collateral effects." Jones will be interview by Lisa Lucas, director of the National Book Foundation.
