7. Marriage plot

Jeffrey Eugenides wowed us with The Virgin Suicides and Middlesex. Now he’s back with a classic love triangle: Boy loves girl, girl (an English major) loves another boy. Will their story have the happy ending of many books girl has studied? For these characters, pride and prejudice abounds, sense and sensibility, not so much!
