Review:

‘If you were ever young and thought you knew what you wanted, if you ever imagined that no one could feel such intensity of emotion as you, if you ever had your dreams dashed and your heart broken, then this is the book for you’ The Times

‘I adored The Marriage Plot ... David Nicholls’ One Day with George Eliot thrown in’ Erica Wagner, The Times, Books of the Year

‘I gorged myself on The Marriage Plot’ Geoff Dyer

‘A marvellous, compulsive storyteller; he reminds us that while love may not always triumph, it follows its own wayward course to the end’ Sunday Telegraph

‘Where it excels is in pinpointing human emotions and in capturing the giddy flux of young love. As Mitchell says, “There were some books that reached through the noise of life to grab you by the collar and speak only of the truest things.” Funny, poignant and insightful, this is one of those books’ Sebastian Shakespeare

‘Immensely readable, funny and heartfelt, with instantly beguiling writing that springs effortlessly back and forth over the year’s events... it was indeed worth waiting for’ Daily Telegraph

‘Utterly engrossing ... so well depicted – with wit, care and charm – that Eugenides hasn’t just raised his game, he’s changed the fictional goalposts’ Daily Mirror

‘In the generosity and and nuance of his characters and paragraphs you are reminded of the Jonathan Franzen of “The Corrections”’ Observer

‘Moving, human and challenging...subtle, pertinent narrative observations that show the work of a master of fiction at work’ Times

Book Description 4th Estate. 1 Paperback(s), 2011. soft. Book Condition: New. (Winner of the 2011 Salon Book Award for Fiction) In his first novel since the 2002 Pulitzer Prize winner Middlesex, Jeffrey Eugenides gives us a classic love-triangle novel and then brilliantly deconstructs it. English major Madeleine Hanna eschews the deconstructionist fervor of the early 1980s for Austen and Eliot and other purveyors of the marriage plot in 19th-century novels. When she gives in to her curiosity and takes a semiotics course, she falls in love with the brilliant if erratic Leonard Bankhead. Then her old friend Mitchell Grammaticus reappears, studying Christian mysticism and convinced that Madeleine is destined to be his mate."Your standard love triangle? Absolutely not. This extraordinary, liquidly written evocation of love's mad rush and inevitable failures will feed your mind as you rapidly turn the pages."—Library Journal (starred review)"[The Marriage Plot] so impressively, ambitiously breaks the mold of its predecessor that it calls for the founding of a new prize to recognize its success both as a novel—and as a Jeffrey Eugenides novel. In capturing the heady spirit of youthful intellect on the verge, Eugenides revives the coming-of-age novel for a new generation. The book's fidelity to its young heroes and to a superb supporting cast of enigmatic professors, feminist theorists, neo-Victorians, and concerned mothers, and all of their evolving investment in ideas and ideals is such that the central argument of the book is also its solution: the old stories may be best after all, but there are always new ways to complicate them."—Publisher's Weekly (starred review) 406.
