In 2003, he received the Pulitzer Prize for his novel Middlesex (FSG, 2002), which was also a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award, the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, and France's Prix Medicis. The Marriage Plot (FSG, 2011) was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award, and won both the Prix Fitzgerald and the Madame Figaro Literary Prize. Eugenides is a professor of creative writing in the Lewis Center for the Arts at Princeton.

Reviews

`[An] excellent short story collection ... Eugenides deploys his pronounced gifts for comedy and characterisation at the same time as he builds an overwhelming atmosphere of suffocation' Guardian

`A very good short story writer...they are a breeze to read and Eugenides inhabits each new consciousness with easy confidence' The Times

`I adored Fresh Complaint ... beautifully written and couldn't be more topical' Observer, Books of the Year

`Eugenides has always been known as a master of prose, a sharp and precise writer whose use of language is second to none ...If you want a manageable yet unputtdownable reading experience for the week, it has to be this' Sunday Times Style Magazine

`The ten stories that make up Fresh Complaint, Eugenides first collection, boast a wide range of themes - a collage of the writer's myriad of interests and voices' TLS

`Deftly drawn sketches ... most concern the tribulations of growing older, and the infernal complications of family life as we adjust to the requirements of ever-changing circumstances' Financial Times

`The collection explores the connection between the inner and outer life, with a suave wit and equanimity that make it deceptively conversational' Literary Review

`These are poignantly told, but it's the characters who are feeling an emotional lack that make the biggest impact' Daily Mail

`Jeffrey Eugenides's beautifully written collection of short stories Fresh Complaint is not only the best thing I've read all year - it also couldn't be more 2017, featuring transgender teenagers, rape allegations on campus and much more besides' Rohan Silva, Evening Standard, Books of the Year

`There is much to enjoy and admire; notably the fact there's not a dud in the collection, an achievement that's harder to pull off that it might seem' Independent
