Jeffrey Eugenides: Middlesex
Listen to/Watch entire show:
Middlesex (Farrar, Straus & Giroux) is a multi-generational novel in which a Greek-American family, replete with elements of Greek tragedy (incest, hermaphroditism), witnesses American history. Appropriately, the narrator is a young man who was born -middle-sexed- and raised female. Jeffrey Eugenides takes care to keep his story away from myth and symbol, by rooting it deeply in American realities.
