The Virgin Suicides

"Added to their loveliness was a new mysterious suffering, perfectly silent, visible in the blue puffiness beneath their eyes or the way they would sometimes stop in mid-stride, look down, and shake their heads as though disagreeing with life."

Jeffrey Eugenides's novel The Virgin Suicides (paperback by The 4th Estate Books) is set in the 1970's and centers around the lives of the Lisbon sisters : Cecilia, Lux, Bonnie, Mary and Therese. As you can probably guess from the title, all the girls commit suicide.
