Eugenides Teaser

By

Jeffrey Eugenides, who has never written a novel that wasn’t well-received, has a new title called The Marriage Plot coming out in October, eight years since everybody first loved Middlesex.

October may seem like forever away, but fortunately The Millions published the first couple lines of the book to tie you over until then. It’s a short excerpt with a lot of literary references, so get ready for that and maybe catch up on your 19th century literature in time for its release.
