The Arrangement in Black and White was a moving and complex book about an interracial marriage replete with grief trauma and ambition The husband Everet is a Black civil rights attorney who comes from a loving and respectful family while his wife Margy is a white wife and mother with mentally ill abusive parents The impact of this abuse is felt throughout the book as Margy spins increasingly out of control as her husband s ambitions take center stage and she continues a long standing pattern of having adulterous affairs with her teacher friend and acuaintances Everet pretends not to notice which become unsustainable when he wants to run for political office and Margy refuses to play the role of political wife and helpmate instead she wants to be an artist which her husband pooh poohs I was drawn in by both of the main characters I felt for Margy as she became dissociated self destructive and mired in abusive relationships with men Her flashbacks to her hellish childhood and the sexual abuse that she endured humanized an often cold and initially unknowable character I also understood Everet s wish for a high flying career and all that it would mean personally and politically and his frustration and anger when he realizes that it will not include his wife There was something likable about this couple and I wanted them to make it I thought how Everet and Margy talked about race was realistic though not enough I hoped that there could be conversations about Margy s dreams and hopes about her art and career but this was not common gender and still isn t in most political circles In the end I missed Margy and Everet as a couple but know they eventually were able to lead fulfilled though challenging lives without each other Thank you Netgalley for giving me this opportunity to review this book
