The Marriage Plot

I have chosen The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides. I finished reading this book about a year ago and absolutely loved it! I first picked it up because it was set against the backdrop of my own college town, Providence, RI. I was also drawn to the subject matter it explored, a love-triangle blossoming directly preceding and following graduation.

While I was originally captivated by the familiar setting, the described scenery so clear in my mind, I soon became enthralled by the compellingly awkward characters and the beautiful way in which Eugenides depicted the pain of young love and the existential crisis sparked by graduation. Overall, I found this novel to be intimate, captivating and witty, and am excited to continue exploring it through the drop cap project.

I am currently re-reading sections and taking notes, I will post those and sketches soon!
