About This Item
Advance promotional issue of this Pulitzer-winning novel from the author of The Virgin Suicides. An epic tour-de-force.
Jeffrey Eugenides was born in 1960 in Detroit, Michigan, the son of an American-born father whose Greek parents emigrated from Asia Minor and an American mother of Anglo-Irish descent. After graduating from Brown University and Stanford University, in 1988 Jeffrey Eugenides published his first short story. His first novel, The Virgin Suicides , was published in 1993 to rapturous acclaim. The compelling, tender and wickedly humorous story of the five Lisbon sisters in “the year of the suicides,” told in a voice representing the eclectic group of men who came under their spell, The Virgin Suicides was an immediate off-beat success. It has been translated into fifteen languages and made into a feature film, and its author was named one of America’s best young novelists by both Granta and The New Yorker . Middlesex , his second novel, won the Pulitzer Prize, was shortlisted for the National Book Critics Circle Award, and was hailed as a brilliant, original and joyful book by critics and readers alike. The New York Times Book Review described Middlesex as a “a colossal act of curiosity, of imagination and of love”; Salman Rushdie called it “A wonderfully rich, ambitious novel”; the Los Angeles Times announced that with it, Jeffrey Eugenides “emerged as the great American writer that many of us suspected him of being.” Jeffrey Eugenides’ fiction has appeared in The New Yorker , The Paris Review , The Yale Review , Best American Short Stories , The Gettysburg Review , and Granta . He lives in Berlin, Germany, with his wife and daughter. His forthcoming projects include a book of short stories and a non-fiction guide to Berlin.
