Auch wenn Jeffrey Eugenides selbst sein neues Buch als college love story beschreibt, ist eine klassische Liebesgeschichte hier kaum zu erwarten... Mit der Abschlussfeier der Hochschule Anfang der Achtziger beginnt die Entfaltung des Lebens der drei Hauptcharaktere außerhalb der Schulpforten. Anders als seine Vorgänger Middlesex und The Virgin Suicides, doch nicht weniger gut. Madeleine Hanna, dutiful English major, while everyone else in the early 1980s was reading Derrida, she was happily absorbed with Jane Austen and George Eliot: purveyors of the marriage plot at the heart of the greatest English novels. In the spring of her senior year she enrols in a semiotics course to see what all the fuss is about, as a result, life and literature will never be the same more
