Love this.

Seriously. I'm swooning already.

Jeffrey Eugenides' first novel in nine years (and his first since the Pulitzer Prize winner MIDDLESEX) will be published by FSG in October. Catalog copy describes THE MARRIAGE PLOT, focused on a college senior in a love triangle, as "a brilliant, funny, and heartbreaking novel about the glories and vicissitudes of young love," with the 576-page novel priced as a $28 hardcover.

OMG OMG OMG SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! The Virgin Suicides is probably my very favorite book of all freakin' time.

I have to wait until October? Man, isn't the nine years enough? But seriously, I'm very excited about this one. Both his other books are on my top shelf...

Loretta Nyhan said...

YES!!! I've read MIDDLESEX three times. CAN'T WAIT for this new one.

I thought Middlesex was a hard read. I'm too dumb for it, I'm sure. But the new one sounds promising...

Monica said...

Yay! I have been waiting for this.

Five Random Things About Suzie

1. I drink so much orange soda, it's probably running through my veins. I've been known to go through a twelve pack of diet sunkist in a day.

2. I'm legitimately nocturnal (or a vampire). I will be so exhausted at two pm that I'm falling asleep standing up - it has happened before, at Six Flags no less - but as soon as the sun goes down I'm wide awake.

3. I have a gorgeous unused $6000 Reem Acra wedding dress hanging in my closet, and it showed up on my doorstep the same day my (now ex) fiance broke up with me. And thank God for that. I wouldn't have wanted to waste that dress on him.

4. Social anxiety plagues me daily. I write a script and practice in front of the mirror when I have to make a phone call, but most people who interact with me have no idea how nervous I am (or perhaps they lie) because I've worked so hard to try to overcome it.

5. I'm actually worried that I will never love my children (when I do have them in the far off future) as much as I love my dogs. I just like animals better than people - they're sweet and innocent and soft and furry - is that so wrong?
