|“Jones is a master and SILVER SPARROW is a revelation, alive with meaning and hope.” |
—Jayne Anne Phillips, author of Lark and Termite
Tayari Jones, author of Leaving Atlanta and The Untelling, visits with her new novel, Silver Sparrow, which independent booksellers nationwide chose as the #1 Indie Next pick for June 2011. Set in a middle-class neighborhood in 1980s Atlanta, the novel revolves around bigamist James Witherspoon's two families—the public one and the secret one. When the daughters from each family meet and form a friendship, only one of them knows they are sisters. It is a relationship destined to explode when secrets are revealed and illusions shattered. Silver Sparrow has been featured in O magazine, Vogue, Poets & Writers, and on NPR's All Things Considered and The Diane Rehm Show.
