I wasn't able to make it through Middlesex but this one does sound good. Great locations and the Victorian novel. This book might be more my speed. But 400 pages and 2/3 done. Wow. How can it not be as long as Middlesex.


Nicole - I thought the same thing. Am hoping that he's building in some editing time!


I saw this on Book Page too. I can't wait to read it. I don't care how long it is. If it's good, page count doesn't matter.


Gayle, you know he went to Brown, right? Go Brown! :) The New Yorker excerpted this at some point, must've been last year. I loved Middlesex I admit but the excerpt I was more interested in for the Providence references.


Yishane - of course! Another reason I am so excited for it. I thought I read the New Yorker piece as well, but for some reason I can't remember it at all. Maybe I never read it.


I really enjoyed Middlesex. It was long but I really enjoyed the details. Looking forward to "The Marriage Plot".

I was fascinated by Middlesex mostly by Eugenides' style of writing . I usually read non fiction so if I read any fiction it has to be outstanding....and this was! I can hardly wait til The Marriage Plot comes out !. Franzen and his Freedom was a big disappointment, so this one by Eugenides will surely make me happy.
