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.'" -- Atlanta Journal Constitution
