  • "Un groupe de jeunes gens évoque la vie des cinq filles Lisbon confinées dans leur villa de banlieue d'une petite ville américaine. Ils cherchent à rassembler les éléments du puzzle qui expliqueront peut-être les morts successives de ces adolescentes, symboles de l'innocence perdue, des vieilles certitudes, du dérèglement des sens."
  • "The shocking thing about the girls was how nearly normal they seemed when their mother let them out for the one and only date of their lives. Twenty years on, their enigmatic personalities are embalmed in the memories of the boys who worshipped them and who now recall their shared adolescence: the brassiere draped over a crucifix belonging to the promiscuous Lux; the sisters' breathtaking appearance on the night of the dance; and the sultry, sleepy street across which they watched a family disintegrate and fragile lives disappear."
  • "Na 20 jaar komt de merkwaardige toedracht rond de zelfmoord van vijf zusjes naar buiten."
  • "The narrator and his friends try to piece together facts and gossip about a tragic suicide that happened twenty years earlier."
  • ""The Virgin Suicides is the 1993 debut novel by American writer Jeffrey Eugenides. The fictional story, which is set in Grosse Pointe, Michigan during the 1970s, centers on one year reflecting upon the brief lives of five doomed sisters. The Lisbon girls fascinate their community as their neighbors struggle to find an explanation for their tragic acts"--"
  • "This beautiful and sad first novel, recently adapted for a major motion picture, tells of a band of teenage sleuths who piece together the story of a twenty-year old family tragedy begun by the youngest daughter's spectacular demise by self-defenstration, which inaugurates "the year of the suicides.""
  • "When school hunk Trip Fontain convinces the beautiful but sheltered Lisbon sisters to go to the prom, the romantic fantasies of a group of neighborhood boys threaten to come true--until all are engulfed in a stunning chain of events that will change their lives forever."
  • "The five Lisbon sisters are brought up in a strict household, and when the youngest kills herself, the oppression of the remaining sisters intensifies.

  • ""The national bestseller from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Middlesex and The Marriage Plot First published in 1993, The Virgin Suicides announced the arrival of a major new American novelist. In a quiet suburb of Detroit, the five Lisbon sisters-beautiful, eccentric, and obsessively watched by the neighborhood boys-commit suicide one by one over the course of a single year. As the boys observe them from afar, transfixed, they piece together the mystery of the family's fatal melancholy, in this hypnotic and unforgettable novel of adolescent love, disquiet, and death. Jeffrey Eugenides evokes the emotions of youth with haunting sensitivity and dark humor and creates a coming-of-age story unlike any of our time. Adapted into a critically acclaimed film by Sofia Coppola, The Virgin Suicides is a modern classic, a lyrical and timeless tale of sex and suicide that transforms and mythologizes suburban middle-American life. For more than twenty years, Picador has been producing beautifully packaged literary fiction and nonfiction books from Manhattan's Flatiron Building. Our Twentieth Anniversary Modern Classics line pairs iconic books with a design that's both small enough to fit in your pocket and unique enough to stand out on your bookshelf. "--"

  • "Anfang der siebziger Jahre, in einer von Ulmen gesäumten Vorstadtstrasse in Nordamerika, richten sich die Blicke einer Schar junger Männer auf ein Haus. Es ist das Haus der Familie Lisbon mit ihren fünf schönen Töchtern: der gescheiten Therese, der pingeligen Mary, der asketischen Bonnie, der scharfen Lux und der blassen, lammfrommen Cecilia. Als sich die jüngste von ihnen aus dem Fenster stürzt, im Sommer, der Zeit der Schlammfliegen, beginnt das Jahr der <<Selbstmorde>>, das die in Baumhäusern und auf Dächern und auf Kühlerhauben versammelten Beobachter für immer verändern wird.
