Summary
Eugenides describes a year or so in the lives of three college seniors at Brown in the early 80s. There is Madeleine, a self-described 2incurable romantic3 who is slightly embarrassed at being so normal. There is Leonard, a brilliant, temperamental student from the Pacific Northwest. And completing the triangle is Mitchell, a Religious Studies major from Eugenides{u2019} own Detroit. What follows is a book delivered in sincere and genuine prose, tracing the end of the students{u2019} college days and continuing into those first, tentative steps toward true adulthood
Summary
Madeleine Hanna breaks out of her straight-and-narrow mold when she enrolls in a semiotics course and falls in love with charismatic loner Leonard Morten, a time which is complicated by the resurfacing of man who is obsessed with the idea that Madeleine is his destiny
