With devastating wit and an abiding understanding of and affection for his characters Jeffrey Eugenides revives the motivating energies of the Novel while creating a story so contemporary and fresh that it reads like the intimate journal of our own lives br br It s the early s the country is in a deep recession and life after college is harder than ever In the caf s on College Hill the wised up kids are inhaling Derrida and listening to the Talking Heads But Madeleine Hanna dutiful English major is writing her senior thesis on Jane Austen and George Eliot purveyors of the marriage plot that lies at the heart of the greatest English novels br br As Madeleine tries to understand why it became laughable to read writers like Cheever and Updike who wrote about the suburbia Madeleine and most of her friends had grown up in in favor of reading the Marquis de Sade who wrote about deflowering virgins in eighteenth century France real life in the form of two very different guys intervenes Leonard Bankhead charismatic loner college Darwinist and lost Portland boy suddenly turns up in a semiotics seminar and soon Madeleine finds herself in a highly charged erotic and intellectual relationship with him At the same time her old friend Mitchell Grammaticus who s been reading Christian mysticism and generally acting strange resurfaces obsessed with the idea that Madeleine is destined to be his mate br br Over the next year as the members of the triangle in this amazing spellbinding novel graduate from college and enter the real world events force them to reevaluate everything they learned in school Leonard and Madeleine move to a biology laboratory on Cape Cod but can t escape the secret responsible for Leonard s seemingly inexhaustible energy and plunging moods And Mitchell traveling around the world to get Madeleine out of his mind finds himself face to face with ultimate questions about the meaning of life the existence of God and the true nature of love br br Are the great love stories of the nineteenth century dead Or can there be a new story written for today and alive to the realities of feminism sexual freedom prenups and divorce With devastating wit and an abiding understanding of and affection for his characters Jeffrey Eugenides revives the motivating energies of the Novel while creating a story so contemporary and fresh that it reads like the intimate journal of our own lives, To be up all night in the darkness of your youth but to be ready for the day to come that was what going to Brown felt like Jeffrey Eugenides br br In celebration of Brown University s th anniversary fifty remarkable prizewinning writers and artists who went to Brown provide unique stories many published for the first time about their adventures on College Hill Funny poignant subversive and nostalgic the essays comics and poems in this collection paint a vivid picture of college life from the s to the present at one of America s most interesting

Wolitzer br br At Brown we felt safely ensconced in a carefree counterculture cocoon free to criticize the university president join a strike by cafeteria workers break china laughing or kiss the sky Pamela Constable, When it comes to love there are a million theories to explain it But when it comes to love stories things are simpler A love story can never be about full possession Love stories depend on disappointment on unequal births and feuding families on matrimonial boredom and at least one cold heart Love stories nearly without exception give love a bad name It is perhaps only in reading a love story or in writing one that we can simultaneously partake of the ecstasy and agony of being in love without paying a crippling emotional price I offer this book then as a cure for lovesickness and an antidote to adultery Read these love stories in the safety of your single bed Let everybody else suffer i Jeffrey Eugenides from the introduction to i My Mistress s Sparrow Is Dead
