This offer is for a complete set of Jeffrey Eugenides works - all of which have been SIGNED by him on their respective title pages! The set is comprised of: 1) "The Virgin Suicides" (1993) -- just celebrating its 25th year. The author's debut. A haunting, tender, and wickedly funny tale of love and terror, memory and imagination, sex and suicide. In 1999, the novel was adapted into a critically acclaimed film directed by Sofia Coppola. Set in Grosse Pointe, Michigan, the novel follows the lives and deaths by suicide of five sisters over the course of an increasingly isolated year, as told from the point of view of the neighborhood boys who obsessively watch them. 2) "Middlesex" (2002) -- Following the life and self-discovery of Calliope Stephanides, or later, Cal, an intersex person raised a girl, but genetically a boy, "Middlesex" also broadly deals with the Greek-American immigrant experience in the United States, the rise and fall of Detroit, and explores the experience of an intersex person in the U.S.A. Winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in addition to being a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award, the International Dublin Literary Award, and France's Prix M├ędicis. 3) "The Marriage Plot" (2011) -- The novel follows three young adults enmeshed in a love triangle, as they graduate from Brown University and establish themselves in the world. A finalist of the National Book Critics Circle Award for fiction in 2011; a New York Times notable book for 2011; and one of the top books of the year according to lists made by Publisher's Weekly, Kirkus Reviews, and The Telegraph. 4) "Fresh Complaint" (2017) -- Compellingly narrated, beautifully written, and packed with a density of ideas, despite their fluid grace, the stories in "Fresh Complaint" chart the development and maturation of a major American writer. Additional shipping charges (at cost) may be required - but will be advised.
