92Y Video: From The Poetry Center Archive: Jeffrey Eugenides Reads Middlesex

From the Poetry Center Archive: Jeffrey Eugenides reads Middlesex at 92nd Street Y in 2002.

Jeffrey Eugenides returns to 92nd Street Y on November 14, to read from The Marriage Plot—a novel that “reminds us with uncommon understanding what it is to be young and idealistic, in pursuit of true love and in love with books and ideas,” wrote The New York Times. He’ll be reading with Jennifer Egan, whose A Visit from the Goon Squad won this year’s Pulitzer Prize.

The event is sold out, but, starting at 8pm on the evening of the event, we’ll be offering a FREE live webcast of the readings. You can watch that here.

To tide you over till then, the video above features an excerpt from Eugenides’ 2002 appearance at the Poetry Center, when he read from Middlesex. The excerpt features his reading of the beginning of the novel, as well as a much later section in which Calliope visits the Obscure Object’s house for the first time.

Related: In an interview with Mark Lawson on Radio 4’s Front Row airing tonight, Eugenides spoke about The Marriage Plot, and the “friendly competition” between him and Jonathan Franzen.

In an ongoing effort to share with our readers some of the great literary moments which the Unterberg Poetry Center has presented across the decades, this blog has begun to feature regular postings of archival recordings. For access to other recordings, please click here.

Unterberg Poetry Center webcasts and access to our archive are made possible in part by the generous support of the Sidney E. Frank Foundation.
