Mabey’s five-figure Marriage ‘a masterpiece’

Juliet Mabey at Oneworld has won a five-way auction for Tayari Jones’ An American Marriage, securing UK and Commonwealth rights (excluding Canada and Australasia) for a five-figure sum.

The title, an Oprah’s Book Club pick, shot to the top of the charts in the US, and Oneworld will publish it in hardback this month.

Mabey said the novel was "a real masterpiece of storytelling that offers an intimate look deep into the soul".
