According to Publishers Marketplace, Issa Rae has optioned Tayari Jones’s 2011 novel Silver Sparrow, which is “about the young daughter of a bigamist who, flouting the unwritten rule against making contact with her half-sister, decides to befriend her, setting into motion a chain of events that will expose the dark and damaging secret that has defined her existence and kept her from claiming her birthright.” Issa Rae herself will produce. I myself will spend my money to see it!
