First Edition Friday: The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides - 11th Sep 2020

“In the end we had the pieces of the puzzle, but no matter how we put them together, gaps remained, oddly shaped emptinesses mapped by what surrounded them, like countries we couldn't name.”

Looking back on their adolescence in suburbian America, a Greek chorus of unnamed men reminisce on a time when one by one, 5 local sisters ended their lives. This however is not just a story of death, but also speaks to love, loss, memory and tragedy all while reminding us of the horror that can be found in the mundane.

This book has gained a huge cult following over the 17 years since it was published (thanks, in part to Sophia Coppola's 1999 film); it's general feeling of eerie nostalgia seems to speak to people in a way which is almost hypnotic.
