Review

"A piercing first novel . . . lyrical and portentous."--"The New York Times
"

"Mr. Eugenides is blessed with the storyteller's most magical gift, the ability to transform the mundane into the extraordinary."--"The New York Times Book Review
"
"Arresting . . . uncannily evokes the wry voice of adolescence and a mixture of curiosity, lust, tenderness, morbidity, cynicism, and the naivete surrounding these bizarre events."--"The Wall Street Journal"

"Arresting . . . uncannily evokes the wry voice of adolescence and a mixture of curiosity, lust, tenderness, morbidity, cynicism, and the naivete surrounding these bizarre events."--"The Wall Street Journal""What can one say about "The Virgin Suicides" that hasn't already been said? Jeffrey Eugenides' brilliant debut has already attained classic status since its first publication in 1993, an estimation accelerated by Sophia Coppola's exquisite 1999 film adaptation. It is that rare novel which enjoys equal adoration from the critical elite and the public at large, a contemporary heir to "The Catcher in the Rye" and "To Kill a Mockingbird."... few other works of modern literature evoke such a unique confluence of wistfulness and doom...""Picador's new paperback edition of "The Virgin Suicides" bears a modest white sleeve with an evocative cover image of lackadaisical teenagers lounging in a field of grass. The understatement of the binding is complemented by the rest of the package: Short of breadth, with larger than average type, it resembles nothing so much as what children refer to as a 'chapter book.' This sparsity of presentation is entirely appropriate, reflecting the marred innocence of the Lisbon girls themselves. "The Virgin Suicides" is a precious item, a timeless document of the eternal pangs of youth, a work which deserves to be savored and treasured and shared."--Michael Munro, PLAYBACK: stl
