The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides.. A big book, full of love and compassion from Middlesex author Eugenides ought to fit the bill for anyone feeling a bit blah about the autumnal weather.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"Eugenides's first novel since 2002's Pulitzer Prize–winning Middlesex 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."

Publishers Weekly

"Dazzling work—Eugenides continues to show that he is one of the finest of contemporary novelists."

Kirkus Reviews
