The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides


Ex-library copy in good reading condition; refurbished to the best of our ability. 

Dust jacket is in very nice shape; some visible shelf and rub wear; now housed in a new HQ  brodart jacket protector. 

Book itself reads nicely.  All internal library materials have been removed, with front endpapers fixed to boards.   Library stamps to top and down length of text block.

Tape remainder marks on orange paper boards [with some very minor surface tearing.]

Inside,  pages look and read nicely with some light read wear to pages.

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.

Twenty years on, their enigmatic personalities are embalmed in the memories of the boys who worshipped them and who now recall their shared adolescence: the brassiere draped over a crucifix belonging to the promiscuous Lux; the sisters' breathtaking appearance on the night of the dance; and the sultry, sleepy street across which they watched a family disintegrate and fragile lives disappear.  - Bookshop Apocalypse
