Virgin Suicides

The Virgin Suicides - Jeffrey Eugenides I don't really know what to say about this book, except that it's going to stay in my mind for a long time. The prose is beautiful, and the way Eugenides portraits the Lisbon girls makes you feel like you're there, on the other side of the road, collecting pieces of hair and old photos and brushes, chasing after a group of girls that are beyond the love or the comprehension of the world.
