Jeffrey Eugenides - Fresh Complaint — at St. Paul's

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, October 3, 2017 at 7:00 pm

In his first-ever collection of short stories, Pulitzer Prize winner Eugenides combines brand-new themes with ideas from his beloved novels. The question of intersex identity that he explored in Middlesex reappears in one story; in another, Mitchell, one of the protagonists of The Marriage Plot, battles dysentery on a search for enlightenment. In other stories, an Indian-American teenager schemes her way out of an arranged marriage, a poet turns to white-collar crime, and a green-card marriage goes off the rails. Eugenides takes on his characters’ predicaments with the humor and compassion he’s known for, proving he’s a master of the short form as well as the long.

Eugenides will be in conversation with Tope Folarin, a writer based in Washington D.C. His debut novel, The Proximity of Distance, is forthcoming from Simon & Schuster.
