The New York Times best-selling writer penned An American Marriage and three earlier novels. Marriage is a 2018 selection of Oprah's Book Club and lays claim to an endorsement by former President Barack Obama, who called it "a moving portrayal of the effects of a wrongful conviction on a young African-American couple."
