The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides

I find that when I try to remember what this novel is like, I can only picture the Sofia Coppola film--the dreamy soundtrack, the gorgeous colors. (Sigh) Perhaps another one to re-read. Am I the only one who doesn't remember anything about the books they've read (other than whether or not they liked them)?


  1. my favorite scene from a movie - when the neighborhood boys and the girls keep calling each other and playing records.

    so cute!

  2. I love that part--how the titles of the songs play out a conversation:

    Boys: "Hello It's Me"
    Girls: "Alone Again, Naturally"
    Boys: "Run to Me"
    Girls: "So Far Away"
