University of Iowa graduate, Tayari Jones, has written four successful books.

Her latest, An American Marriage, receives the ultimate Oprah seal of public approval. It's the newest member of Oprah's wildly popular book club.

In a video posted on her website, Oprah heaped high praise on the novel, saying Jones, "redefines the traditional American love story. It's one of those books I could not put down."

Oprah is so impressed by the novel, she has already announced through the Oprah Winfrey Network that her production company, Harpo Films, will produce a film adaptation of An American Marriage.
