A breathtaking tale of family secrets, from the international bestselling author of An American Marriage.

‘My father, James Witherspoon, is a bigamist.’

This is the story of a man’s deception, a family’s complicity, and the two teenage girls caught in the middle. James Witherspoon has two families, one public, the other a closely guarded secret. But when his daughters meet and form a friendship, only one of them knows the truth. Theirs is a relationship destined to explode.

Silver Sparrow is the stunning new novel from the critically acclaimed winner of the 2019 Women’s Prize for Fiction, one of the most important writers of her generation.
