Asks the question: how much of who we are is determined by our gender?

I simply can not stomach incest, so I had to put the book down before finishing it.

Narrator Calliope Stephanides recounts the history of the family, from dire poverty in Greece to race riots in 1960s Detroit. While each character faces his or her own demons, no one is more trouble than our narrator, whose sexual identity is a source of pain, humiliation, and isolation. Eugenides creates a journey of discovery for the reader, dispelling myths about and endowing humanity to the "freak." One could read this work for its many insights and perhaps I will, too, on a second or third reading. But I loved Middlesex first and foremost as a truly wonderful story told by a master storyteller.
