A Most Anticipated Book for 2020 according to The Sunday Times, the FT and the Guardian

A breathtaking tale of family secrets, from the international bestselling author of An American Marriage

'My father, James Witherspoon, is a bigamist.'

This is the story of a man's deception, a family's complicity, and the two teenage girls caught in the middle. James Witherspoon has two families, one public, the other a closely guarded secret. But when his daughters meet and form a friendship, only one of them knows the truth. Theirs is a relationship destined to explode.

Silver Sparrow is the stunning new novel from the critically acclaimed winner of the 2019 Women's Prize for Fiction, one of the most important writers of her generation.


‘A love story... Full of perverse wisdom and proud joy... Jones's skill for wry understatement never wavers.’(O: The Oprah Magazine)

‘Charting a vast emotional unknown is Tayari Jones's compelling third novel, Silver Sparrow, in which a teenage girl's coming of age in 1980s Atlanta is shadowed by her dawning understanding of a corrosive secret – her father's second family.’(Vogue)

‘Silver Sparrow will break your heart before you even know it. Tayari Jones has written a novel filled with characters I'll never forget. This is a book I'll read more than once.’(Judy Blume)

‘One of those 'just one more chapter' kind of books that require much last-minute changing of plans, because real life feels far less amusing, appalling, shocking, and loving than the world of its characters.’(Slate)

‘An exciting read all the way through.’(Chicago Tribune)

‘Tayari Jones has taken Atlanta for her literary terroir, and like many of our finest novelists, she gives readers a sense of place in a deeply observed way. But more than that, Jones has created in her main characters tour guides of that region: honest, hurt, observant and compelling young women whose voices cannot be ignored... Impossible to put down.’(Los Angeles Times)

‘Populating this absorbing novel is a vivid cast of characters, each with his own story... Jones writes dialogue that is realistic and sparkling, with an intuitive sense of how much to reveal and when.’(Washington Post)

‘Jones beautifully evokes Atlanta in the 1980s while creating gritty, imperfect characters whose pain lingers in the reader's heart.’(Kirkus)

‘A graceful and shining work about finding the truth.’(Library Journal (starred review))

‘Award winner Tayari Jones weaves a tale of Black bigamy and two families in the fascinating fiction of Silver Sparrow.’(Ebony)
