First published in 1993, The Virgin Suicides announced the arrival of a major new American novelist. In a quiet suburb of Detroit, the five Lisbon sisters—beautiful, eccentric, and obsessively watched by the neighborhood boys—commit suicide one by one over the course of a single year. As the boys observe them from afar, transfixed, they piece together the mystery of the family’s fatal melancholy, in this hypnotic and unforgettable novel of adolescent love, disquiet, and death. Jeffrey Eugenides evokes the emotions of youth with haunting sensitivity and dark humor and creates a coming-of-age story unlike any of our time. Adapted into a critically acclaimed film by Sofia Coppola, The Virgin Suicides is a modern classic, a lyrical and timeless tale of sex and suicide that transforms and mythologizes suburban middle-American life.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Mike Finn | 2/16/2014

    " Clever and well-written and strangely compelling, but when you know the outcome it becomes a march to the end and I began to hope it came sooner rather than later. Disappointing "

    " This is a very good book, but very depressing story. Another one where the book is much much better than the film. "
