    4.5 Jeffrey Eugenides is back! Not only is he ahead of schedule, but he brought us short stories. This is a wonderful collection that showcases his exquisite writing again and again.

    This superb collection of short fiction by Jeffrey Eugenides includes stories written between 1988 and 2017. The stories were all new to me.

    I’d really enjoyed the author’s novel Middlesex (where I discovered a dictionary’s worth of words I previously had no knowledge of) so the opportunity to read a bunch of short stories from the hand of this gifted scribbler was something I wasn’t going to pass up. All of these st...

    I'd rate this 3.5 stars.Ever since Jeffrey Eugenides burst on to the literary scene in the early 1990s with The Virgin Suicides , he's proven himself to be an expert commentator on the foibles of the human condition, sex, adolescence, relationships, family dynamics, and, at times, the often-mundane...
