|The Marriage Plot|
|Publisher||Farrar, Straus and Giroux|
|Media type||Print (Hardback)|
The novel was well received by critics. William Deresiewicz wrote, "'The Marriage Plot' is a new departure...intimate in tone and scale.... It’s about what Eugenides’s books are always about, no matter how they differ: the drama of coming of age.... It possesses the texture and pain of lived experience." Carlin Romano called it "the most entertaining campus novel since Wolfe's I Am Charlotte Simmons."
