The Marriage Plot

The Marriage Plot - Such a brilliant novel about that first year out of college. It's an update of the classic form in the title, it's a story about growing up, it's a book about books.... and I feel like, for better or worse, Eugenides wrote this book for me. It is rare that I feel so deeply connected (even to the bad things, the things that make me uncomfortable and upset) to a book in that cliched way - but I feel it. This book was meant for me and I'm so happy to've read it. And yeah, Eugenides is pretty great too.LOTS more thoughts about books, marriage, plots, and this book in particular over at Raging Biblioholism: http://wp.me/pGVzJ-ja
