About this title

Synopsis:

With the opening line of Silver Sparrow, ?My father, James Witherspoon, is a bigamist,? author Tayari Jones unveils a breathtaking story about a man?s deception, a family?s complicity, and the two teenage girls caught in the middle.

Set in a middle-class neighborhood in Atlanta in the 1980s, the novel revolves around 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. This is the third stunning novel from an author deemed ?one of the most important writers of her generation? (the Atlanta Journal Constitution).
