    The B&N Podcast: Tayari Jones 

    Every author has a story beyond the one that they put down on paper. The Barnes & Noble Podcast goes between the lines with today’s most interesting writers, exploring what inspires them, what confounds them, and what they were thinking when they wrote the books we’re talking about.

    An American Marriage is Tayari Jones’s extraordinary fourth novel, a page-turning love story with a powerful political undercurrent. It’s as much a novel about family and race, expectation and desire, loneliness and loyalty as it is a story about how readily the American Dream can be derailed on the basis of skin color.  The writer of one of the season’s most keenly anticipated new books joins Miwa Messer in the studio to talk about writing a story that’s page-turning and thought-provoking in equal measure.

    The author of Silver Sparrow returns with a stunning novel about race, loyalty, and love that endures.

    Newlyweds Celestial and Roy are the embodiment of both the American Dream and the New South. He is a young executive, and she is an artist on the brink of an exciting career. But as they settle into the routine of their life together, they are ripped apart by circumstances neither could have imagined. Roy is arrested and sentenced to twelve years for a crime Celestial knows he didn’t commit. Though fiercely independent, Celestial finds herself bereft and unmoored, taking comfort in Andre, her childhood friend, and best man at their wedding. As Roy’s time in prison passes, she is unable to hold on to the love that has been her center. After five years, Roy’s conviction is suddenly overturned, and he returns to Atlanta ready to resume their life together.

    This stirring love story is a profoundly insightful look into the hearts and minds of three people who are at once bound and separated by forces beyond their control. An American Marriage is a masterpiece of storytelling, an intimate look deep into the souls of people who must reckon with the past while moving forward–with hope and pain–into the future.

    5 Reasons Rupi Kaur Is the Poet of Our Times 

    Poetry doesn’t often make headlines—much less the bestseller lists. Which makes Rupi Kaur all the more remarkable, even before you’ve even read a single word of her verse. Her first collection of poems, Milk and Honey, has sold more than a million copies, likely many of them to her more than 2 million social media followers. In a book world in which thrillers dominate, having a bona-fide poet sell like that is pretty exciting.

    Of course, poetry is subjective, and your appreciation (or lack thereof) for it changes as you change. Poems that didn’t resonate when read in school creep up on you in middle age, and poets that blew your mind when you were 20 may not seem as profound by age 50. But Kaur is the real deal, and as close as we’ve come to a poetry superstar in a long, long time. As her second collection, the marvelous The Sun and Her Flowers, continues to gather her new admirers, we offer these reasons why.

    Her Grasp of Medium

    We’re living in the 21st century, a world in which tiny computers live in every pocket. People are increasing cutting cords and consuming media on their phones instead of their televisions. Just 25, Kaur understands that even if print books are making a comeback, her generation lives on social media, and that has an effect on how they read and understand. Her poetry reflects this; it’s often said she really publishes on her Instagram account, which is where much of her work appears, long before it’s collected. Her poems are crafted for the platform—short, with artful line breaks that are visually appealing (the impact of the “shape” of a poem has long been misunderstood, but poets from T.S. Eliot to Lewis Carroll believed what a poem looks on the page matters). They are usually accompanied by her warm, hand-drawn illustrations. If you were to design a bionic poet for the social media age, it would be Rupi Kaur.

    She Makes It Look Easy

    That style of short, eccentrically-formatted poems is easy to mock. Like the folks who see a Jackson Pollack painting and say their kid could paint it, people see a poem like this and think anyone could do it:

    the idea that we are

    so capable of love

    but still choose

    to be toxic

    But the style is much more controlled and subtle than it first appears. Kaur’s line breaks are diamond-sharp, and her lack of capital letters and limited use of punctuation (the period is the only mark she uses) is a nod towards her heritage; both features of Punjabi, the language of her birthplace. If you dismiss Kaur’s work as simplistic, you’re not paying attention.

    Her Work Fights Chauvinism

    Criticism of Kaur often has a decidedly unsavory chauvinistic edge. A large proportion of her work deals with issues women encounter daily, but are often invisible to men; as her audience is heavily female, there’s a tendency by male culture hawks to dismiss it as silly or shallow. It’s a sadly common idea—that anything that appeals to women must, of course, be inferior (a fact romance readers know well). That much of Kaur’s work deals with abuse and oppression by men makes it feel even more of the moment in the era of #MeToo and #TimesUp.

    There’s a Narrative

    Neophytes often boggle at the abstract nature of poetry—its lack of a story or a character to become involved with.

    Kaur, remarkably, constructs a narrative with her poems, despite the fact that they initially appear one-by-one on her social media platforms. Milk and Honey is divided into four sections: the hurting, the loving, the breaking, the healing. Reading from the beginning to the end tells the story of a relationship, with Kaur as the main character, and it’s a powerful story arc that’s easy to invest in emotionally. It turns out Kaur is a storyteller—and a very good one.

    She’s Not Processed

    Art in the modern age is often overly processed and commercialized. Singers are auto-tuned to perfection. Writers are more conscious and savvy about reaching a viable market than ever. Kaur charms with an aesthetic that seems to be precisely the opposite, a refreshing quality that is hopefully the beginning of a new trend. Her work pops up on social media with an immediacy that feels urgent, and her artwork has an off-the-cuff feel that reminds you of quick doodles in the margins of a book. There’s an air of honesty about it all, an emotional impact resulting from truth rather than careful attention to production values.

    Poetry is often thought of as impenetrable, but Rupi Kaur has made it imminently accessible, and in doing so, she has revolutionized an ancient art form for today.

    Romance Roundup: Breeds, Brewery Owners, and Vampire Warriors 

    This week’s Romance Roundup includes a businesswoman who meets a baron in disguise, two vampire warriors who fall in love again during training, and a brewery owner who falls hard for a single mom during a snowstorm.

    Elizabeth’s Wolf, by Lora Leigh
    Special-Forces soldier Dash was at a mega-low point in his life and career. Then he got some fan mail from a kid, and that kept his spirits up. Then the kid stops writing, and Dash realizes that she and her mother are in trouble, so he goes in pursuit of them. (He has some animalistic abilities that help him in his quest.) He finds them, and falls mega-hard for the little girl’s very hot and very single mama. Said sexy mama, Elizabeth, doesn’t have time to dilly dally, what with the evil forces that are trying to track down her and her little girl. Then she meets Dash, and suddenly realizes that having such a man in her life could only be a great thing. As for Dash, his protective wolf instincts kick in, and he would love nothing more than to create a safe, proverbial den for his new family. This book, revised since it was first printed, is the third installment in Leigh’s Breeds series. (Available in paperback and NOOK.)

    A Wedding at Two Love Lane, by Kieran Kramer
    Greer Jones is doing very well for herself in her job at Two Love Lane, a very prestigious matchmaking agency. (Greer, you’ll, ah, hook us all up for free, right?!) She has no interest in finding love for herself, though. That said, she decides to enter a cocktail-party contest to win a very beautiful wedding gown, and she finds a date for it. The very handsome and very British Ford Smith is trying to stay under the radar. (Hard to see how that is possible considering that accent and those cheekbones but okay, we’ll play along.) Greer thinks he’s a broke artist, but he is, in fact, the Eighth Baron of Wickshire. (Ford, you can Eighth Baron of Wickshire us any day of the week!) Ford is falling hard for Greer, but he’s also proceeding with caution due to a past filled with greedy women. Trust us, Ford. Greer is an awesome lady who has her own thing going on! This is the second book in Kramer’s Two Love Lane series. (Available in paperback and NOOK.)

    Heart of the Wolf, by Terry Spear
    Bella is a female red werewolf who was adopted by grey wolves when she was still a puppy. Now she’s a woman fully grown, as they say, and the grey wolf alpha wants to mate with her. Bella’s like “Nope!” and decides to run away and do the lone wolf thing for a bit. She’s eventually followed and found by her childhood friend, Devlyn, and let’s just say he’s unlike any childhood friend anyone’s ever had. They start to make their way home, and encounter all kinds of creatures and humans who wouldn’t mind seeing them both dead. There’s also the matter of their growing attraction for each other. If they do come together, Devlyn will have to fight that pesky alpha male to the death for her. Fortunately, he realizes that some things are worth fighting for. (We have faith in you, Devlyn!) This is the first book in Spear’s Heart of the Wolf series. (Available in paperback and NOOK.)

    The Rogue is Back in Town, by Anna Bennett
    Sam, a wayward brother from a wealthy family, is back in London. He’s ready to make peace with his brother, and his first step is to take up residence in a ramshackle townhouse. Unfortunately for Sam, the house is occupied by Miss Juliette Lacey. She wants to use the house for her own purposes, namely, to make her weird family seem just a tad more normal in society’s eyes. (Oh, Juliette, just embrace their flaws! It’ll make life easier. ) Sam and Juliette keep trying to kick each other out of the house and claim their territory, and they fall for each other in the process. Who will win this battle of wits and walls? (Hint hint, Sam and Juliette: You can totally get married and share the townhouse, although we’re pretty sure you’ll end up preferring the country life when you expand your family!) This is the third book in Bennett’s Wayward Wallflowers series. (Available in paperback and NOOK.)

    Every Dog Has His Day, by Jenn McKinlay
    Brewery owner Zachary Caine is the resident hunk and playboy of Bluff Point, and he has zero plans to change his ways. Then he meets a cute kitten named Chaos, and ends up becoming quite close to the kitten’s owners—single mom Jessie Connelly and her two daughters. Jessie refuses to fall for Zachary, because she’s gotten burned by sexy men in the past. That said, he’s very good with her daughters. (Trust your kids’ instincts, Jessie! They know when someone is good or bad, and Zachary is very, very good!) Then a snowstorm hits, and Jessie and Zachary are forced to get to know each other in all kinds of ways. (Side note: Here’s hoping that SOMEONE got lucky during the Bomb Cyclone!) When dirt from Jessie’s past comes to the surface, Zachary decides that no one is going to get to his woman or their girls without going through him first! This is the third book in McKinlay’s A Bluff Point Romance series. (Available in paperback, NOOK, and audiobook.)

    Blood Fury, by J.R. Ward
    Vampires Novo and Peyton are two of the newest recruits at the Black Dagger Brotherhood training center. (As the name would suggest, it’s a very competitive program, and everyone involved is on a mission to destroy the Lessening Society and make the world a sunny place.) Novo is a tough, scrappy lady with a body that makes the CrossFit people stew in envy, and Peyton has that whole hot, haughty aristocratic thing going for him. (Peyton, you can look down your lordly nose at us any day of the week!) Peyton gives in to his more emotional side, though, and confesses his feelings and attraction to Novo. Sadly, our gal rejects him in favor of a guy who just makes her feel, in a word, meh. There just might be a second chance for these two during training. Novo and Peyton, please don’t blow it! This is the third book in Ward’s Black Dagger Legacy series. (Available in hardcover, NOOK, and audiobook on January 9.)

    What romances are you snuggling up with this week?
