When we thought of the girls along these lines, it was feverish creatures, exhaling soupy breath, succumbing day by day in their isolated ward.
Eugenides is on solid ground with Trip Fontaine, a terrific character who electrifies the book. Anyone else repelled by this book and its almost masturbatory reminiscence of what it felt like to be an American middle class white boy in suburbs in the s, with no first-hand knowledge of girls, lusting and longing for the Lisbon Sisters, without actually being able to see them as people?
In the morning, a soft oral thrush had sprouted over their tonsils. The shocking thing about the girls was how nearly normal they seemed when their mother let them out for the one and only date of their lives. Eugenides did not throw this book together; in my mind’s eye I see him sitting at his desk turning each phrase over and over in his hands until he gets it exactly right.
I couldn’t put this book down. Instead of a heady atmosphere of feminine chaos, we found the house to be a tidy, dry-looking place that smelled faintly of stale popcorn.

Lisbon’s class and asks her father for permission to take Lux to Homecoming, offering to have three of his friends accompany the remaining Lisbon girls to the dance as well.
Eugenides records it all lle dizzying prose that is amazingly detailed, often acidic and sometimes baffling.
They probably lost all hopes of having a good future like finishing school after they were pulled out just because Lux missed the curfew or finding a rich man to marry since they were not allowed to go out anymore. In blue blazers, with khaki trousers and clip-on neckties, we walked along the sidewalk in front of the Lisbon house as we had so many times before, but this time we turned up the walk, and climbed the front steps between the pots of red geraniums, and rang the doorbell.

He’s a storyteller who tells his tales, these deceptively simple stories that make you stop whatever you’re doing, curl your toes, bite your nails, giggle into your hands or shout.
One’s even described as “horsey”. I’m so, so sorry. Despite this tick of Euginides writing, Eugemides feel as though this book will stick with me for a while. Such a moody novel with sparse dialogue, but what is there, is so right on and often funny The way this verigni was written is brilliant.

To this list I add myself, since I would give anything to be able to write half as well as Eugenides.
