What’s that you say about author photos? I am Jeffrey Eugenides, and as a great man once said, I am what I am. No, I will not colloquialize that phrase.
You see, I am accessible yet formidable, the kind a guy who will wear a vest in his full-body, full-face author photo. My storytelling skills are so good that you don’t even think about craft while you are reading my books! Yes, I am carrying glasses in one hand and a book in the other— literature! My latest book is about literature! I am about literature! But literature that wears a polka-dot button-down! I grew up in the 70s! Here I come!
You can see my bulge in my author photo. Take that, Franzen, you fucking twerp.
