Episode 33: An American Marriage

Hey QTs! This month’s episode is on the wonderful An American Marriage by Tayari Jones. Have you read it yet? If not, what are you waiting for???

In this episode, we discuss: the fact that we didn’t take any notes because we were too busy reading and loving this book, crying in public about books, family bonds, predicting and peeking at the end of books, what is marriage and what makes a good one?, idealized representations of romance, people viewed as archetypes, and how realistic is a store for dolls that cost hundreds of dollars? (oh wait, American Girl dolls are a thing…).

Olivia drinks: a huge bottle of Malbec rose (with an adorbs love story attached)
Ashley drinks: sauvignon blanc
