    City Arts & Lectures Jeffrey Eugenides Jeffrey Eugenides bestselling novels, including Middlesex, The Marriage Plot, and The Virgin Suicides, show him to be an astute observer of the crisis of adolescence, sexual identity, self-discovery, and what it means to be an American in our times. His new short story collection "Fresh Complaint continues that tradition. Ranging from the reproductive antics of Baster to the wry, moving account of a young travelers search for enlightenment in Air Mail (selected by Annie Proulx for The Best American Short Stories 1997), this collection presents characters in the midst of personal and national crises. We meet a failed poet who, envious of other peoples wealth during the real-estate bubble, becomes an embezzler; a clavichordist whose dreams of art collapse under the obligations of marriage and fatherhood; and, in Bronze, a sexually confused college freshman whose encounter with a stranger on a train leads to a revelation about his past and his future. Narratively compelling, beautifully written, and packed with a density of ideas that belie their fluid grace, Fresh Complaint proves Eugenides to be a master of the short form as well as the long.
