Book Club to Discuss Pulitzer Prize-Winning Author
May 21, 2013
As I read The Marriage Plot by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jeffrey Eugenides, the story hit so close to home portraying young college graduates’ first forays into the working world, love, and the search for identity that I found it painful to read. Painfully true. Painfully moving. Painfully beautiful.
Set in the "historical era" of the 1980s, The Marriage Plot tells the story of three young people, idealistic, flawed, and naïve as they end their childhoods and stuggle to understand who they are as adults. The story is, at its core, a sweeping romance, but it also delves into the horrors of clinical depression and the euphoria of spiritual enlightenment as the love triangle between the three main characters unfolds.
We’ll discuss The Marriage Plot at the Kearney Book Club on Friday, June 7th at 10 a.m. Join us!
