The boys that once loved them from afar are now grown men, determined to understand a tragedy that has always defied explanation. For still, the question remains - why did all five of the Lisbon girls take their own lives? This hypnotic and unforgettable novel treats adolescent love and death with haunting sensitivity and dark humour, and creates a coming-of-age story unlike any of our time.Hide synopsis

Description:Signed by Author. Hardcover. First Edition. First Printing. 249...Signed by Author. Hardcover. First Edition. First Printing. 249 pages. Fine in Fine dust jacket. The author's breakthrough debut novel. Now considered a contemporary classic. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Jeffrey Eugenides' astonishing debut. The unforgettable story of the multiple suicides of the radiantly beautiful, precocious, and self-destructive Lisbon sisters, based on a true story, is recounted by one of their adoring boy-witnesses. Jeffrey Eugenides is complacently labeled as yet another writer of the American-immigrant experience, a label he rightly resists because he completely transcends it. "A rare first novel that ends, wondrously, on a note of the profoundest grief" (John Hawkes). As a stylist, there are few writers among Eugenides's generation whose mastery of the English language is complete and whose poetic sensibility makes his novels exquisite ("Middlesex" is his second novel, after a long hiatus; "The Marriage Plot" his third, after another long hiatus). The basis of the fine film debut by Sofia Coppola, with Kirsten Dunst and Josh Hartnett. A "must-have" title for Jeffrey Eugenides collectors. This presentation copy is very prominently and beautifully signed and inscribed in black pen-marker on the title page by the author: "Eugenides". The recipient is named on top while the author signed on the bottom, in a neat symmetry. The author signs like his Greek ancestors, with his family name only. This comes with a brand-new copy of the film adaptation on DVD. This title is now highly collectible. This is one of very few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and despite its imperfection (slight wear, creasing, and rubbing on the DJ) is still in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. A rare signed copy thus. Winner of the Aga Khan Prize for Fiction in 1991 and the Ingram Merrill Foundation Fellowship in 1992 for "The Virgin Suicides". Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 2003 for "Middlesex". The author was selected as one of "Twenty Writers for the 21st Century" on the basis of his first published work of fiction. One of the most brilliant living American writers. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER JEFFREY EUGENIDES TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0374284385.

I waited years to read this book because I had the idea that it would be darkly disturbing. In essence it is disturbing, but not at all hard to read. It went by so quickly I was shocked when I came to the last page.
Five sisters, controlled by a mother who has no idea what kind of harm she is inflicting ...
It is a beautifully written novel that is almost lyrical. The story is told through the eyes of one of the neighbor boys who obsesses over and ?loves? the girls along with all of his buddies. At one point in the novel the narrator connects the deaths of the stately Elms to the deaths of the five sisters ...
