At a ceremony in central London earlier today, Tayari Jones (who beat out Pat Barker, Madeline Miller, Diana Evans, Oyinkan Braithwaite, Anna Burns) was presented with the £30,000 award (and a limited edition bronze figure, the “Bessie”) for her novel, An American Marriage, which tells the story of a couple torn apart when one of them is imprisioned for a crime he didn’t commit.

See what the critics thought here.
