The theme this week at Fussy has been celebrating books that are thirty now (give or take a year).
Previously, that was The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales; today, it's The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides.
Author Dizz Tate waxes nostalgic about the novel, which she first encountered in the form of a 1999 movie adaptation.
The original version, of course, captivated her (and so many others) once she picked it up as well.
Tate describes what The Virgin Suicides meant to her then and now in an essay for the Guardian.
