Jeffrey Eugenides's Biography

Jeffrey Eugenides is a Pulitzer Prize winning author and Professor of Creative Writing at Princeton. As the acclaimed author of ‘The Virgin Suicides’, ‘Middlesex’ and ‘The Marriage Plot’, as well as numerous short stories, Jeffrey is often hailed as one of the greatest living American authors.

After graduating from Brown University and Stanford in 1986, Jeffrey received the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Nicholl Fellowship for his story “Here Comes Winston, Full of the Holy Spirit”. Jeffrey’s first novel, ‘The Virgin Suicides’, was published in 1993. Jeffrey’s work is a modern observation of American life and is often described as both discomforting and psychologically insightful.
