“The marriage plot” by Jeffrey Eugenides
Eugenides describes a year or so in the lives of three college seniors at Brown in the early 80s. There is Madeleine, a self-described “incurable romantic” who is slightly embarrassed at being so normal. There is Leonard, a brilliant, temperamental student from the Pacific Northwest. And completing the triangle is Mitchell, a Religious Studies major from Eugenides' own Detroit. What follows is a book delivered in sincere and genuine prose, tracing the end of the students' college days and continuing into those first, tentative steps toward true adulthood.”
