Jeffrey Eugenides on the Marriage Plot

At BookExpo America, the annual conference for booksellers, librarians and publishers, novelist Jeffrey Eugenides previewed The Marriage Plot, his much anticipated follow-up to Middlesex. (Astute Work in Progress readers may remember his conversation with editor Jonathan Galassi from our debut issue.)

The author shared the stage with Mindy Kaling, Diane Keaton, and Charlaine Harris.

The Marriage Plot will be published this October by FSG. You can read an excerpt in the June 6th, 2011 issue of The New Yorker.
