50 States of Literatue: Next Stop, Michigan | Columbia Spectator

The Columbia Spectator offers up the second in its series of the 50 states in literature with its entry for Michigan: The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides. I’ve not read this one, although Eugenides’s Middlesex was very popular with my book group.

Spectator praises Virgin Suicides for its portrayal of the  “awkward tenderness of first love and the comforting rhythm of small-town life.”
