BOOKS In "The Marriage Plot," Jeffrey Eugenides' first novel since 2002's Pulitzer Prize–winning "Middlesex," he examines the lives of three college seniors at Brown University in the '80s. The three characters — Madeleine, an incurable romantic; Leonard, a brilliant but unstable philosopher, and Mitchell, a clear-eyed religious-studies student — find themselves enveloped in a love triangle of sorts that loops in enigmatic professors, feminist theorists, neo-Victorians and concerned mothers.
