Mitchell, Madeleine, and Leonard: a classic triangle, but in the hands of the masterful author of The Virgin Suicides and Middlesex, the story of these three college classmates is much more. Set in the early 1980s, the novel chronicles the characters’ experiences as they finish college and face the “real” world. Given illness, unrequited love, and impossible models like Mother Teresa, of what help to them is semiotics, Jane Austen, or even Darwin?
On October 31, the day of the event, pre-ordered books and tickets will be held for pickup at the Sixth & I Synagogue. The event Will Call opens at 6 p.m. and the event begins promptly at 7 with General Admission seating. If you do not attend the event, your signed book will be taken back to Politics & Prose for post-event pickup or shipping. We may have additional signed copies available until after the event. Please call us after Tuesday, November 1 to inquire.
