Jeffrey Eugenides presents The Marriage Plot ($28.00).

"The way of true love never works out, except at the end of an English novel." —Anthony Trollope

The author of two beloved novels, Middlesex (winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize) and the now-classic The Virgin Suicides (made into a haunting film by Sofia Coppola), is back—with one of the most anticipated novels of the year
—a story about modern love. It's the early 1980s—the country is in a deep recession, and life after college is harder than ever. In the cafes on College Hill, the wised-up kids are inhaling Derrida and listening to the Talking Heads. But Madeleine Hanna, dutiful English major, is writing her senior thesis on Jane Austen and George Eliot, purveyors of the marriage plot that lies at the heart of the greatest English novels.
