The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides

This is no Middlesex, which is one of my favourite books. But how can you really follow that one up? The Marriage Plot is very good. In typical Eugenides fashion, it has many layers. I think a lot of those layers are suited best to English majors and if you aren’t one, the references may lose you. (I particularly loved descriptions of Semiotics class.) Regardless, the story is entertaining and clever. Of course.
