Jeffrey Eugenides The Marriage Plot
The author of the bestselling The Virgin Suicides and the Pulitzer Prize winning Middlesex, returns with another memorable novel. The reader is asked: Are the great love stories of the nineteenth century dead? Or can there be a new story, written for today and alive to the realities of feminism, sexual freedom, pre-nups, and divorce? Set in the early 1980s, Eugenides creates a new kind of contemporary love story that some are calling his most powerful novel yet. A review in The New York Times said that this book reminds us with uncommon understanding what it is to be young and idealistic, in pursuit of true love and in love with books and ideas.
