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.
