The Virgin Suicides Summary

The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides

The shocking thing about the girls was how nearly normal they seemed when their mother let them out for the one and only date of their lives. Twenty years on, their enigmatic personalities are embalmed in the memories of the boys who worshipped them and who now recall their shared adolescence: the brassiere draped over a crucifix belonging to the promiscuous Lux; the sisters' breathtaking appearance on the night of the dance; and the sultry, sleepy street across which they watched a family disintegrate and fragile lives disappear.

The Virgin Suicides Reviews

'One of the finest novels in many years - a Catcher in the Rye for our time' Observer 'Wonderfully original' Independent 'One of the finest novels - I have read in many years... a wonderful mixture of amusement, wistfulness and contained grief' John Banville 'Entire and unstoppable... a sparkling work' The Times Choreographed with daunting measures of menace and grace, this elegiac celebration of beauty, philosophical acceptance, youthful longing and lasting regret remains one of the finest literary debuts of all -- Eileen Battersby Irish Times 20111119
