Jeffrey Eugenides, I love you.

Read. This. Now.

Article about Jeffrey Eugenides’ first novel The Virgin Suicides (it’s a film too — anyone heard of Kirsten Dunst? come on, people, I know you’ve seen this flick) and its sixteenth birthday.

What I like best is how Eugenides had no faith that the book would actually get published, so he didn’t refrain from using the names of people he knew in the novel. Good to know even a talented guy like Jeffrey Eugenides has self-doubt.

He should finish that third novel. Like now.

Check out this article about Middlesex, Jeffrey Eugenides’ novel (Pulitzer Prize winner and one of my favorites!), turning into an HBO series:

You MUST read the book — obviously awesome plot, or else they wouldn’t make it into a TV series, but Eugenides has such beautiful language.
