Middlesex: A Novel | Jeffrey Eugenides
A dazzling triumph from the bestselling author of The Virgin Suicides--the astonishing tale of a gene that passes down through three generations of a Greek-American family and flowers in the body of a teenage girl.In the spring of 1974, Calliope Stephanides, a student at a girls' school in Grosse Pointe, finds herself drawn to a chain-smoking, strawberry blond clasmate with a gift for acting. The passion that furtively develops between them--along with Callie's failure to develop--leads Callie to suspect that she is not like other girls. In fact, she is not really a girl at all.The explanation for this shocking state of affairs takes us out of suburbia- back before the Detroit race riots of 1967, before the rise of the Motor City and Prohibition, to 1922, when the Turks sacked Smyrna and Callie's grandparents fled for their lives. Back to a tiny village in Asia Minor where two lovers, and one rare genetic mutation, set in motion the metamorphosis that will turn Callie into a being both mythical and perfectly real: a hermaphrodite.Spanning eight decades--and one unusually awkward adolescence- Jeffrey Eugenides's long-awaited second novel is a grand, utterly original fable of crossed bloodlines, the intricacies of gender, and the deep, untidy promptings of desire. It marks the fulfillment of a huge talent, named one of America's best young novelists by both Granta and The New Yorker.Middlesex is the winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.

I‘ve finished the first third @sisilia Definitely NOT what I was expecting ~ it‘s much quirkier and utterly delightful. The first third is basically the history of Cal‘s grandparents union and it‘s quite a story. Waiting to hear your thoughts #SexyBuddyRead 😉

Guess what? I liked it! I really liked itl It took some persistence, but ultimately I‘m glad I didn‘t bail on this one. I still stand by the belief this book had some lengthy, verbose description at times, but I get how ultimately, a lot of the description was necessary in understanding how the rest of the story was to unfold. This is one of those stories with heart that spans generations with just a splash of tongue in cheek humor. Stick with it.

Lcsmcat Yay! I‘m glad you liked it! It‘s a favorite of mine. 2w
Megabooks Awesome!! So glad you finished it!! 2w

Help! I really want to give Middlesex a chance since so many of you loved it so much, but I‘m really struggling through all the dense description. Does it get better or is it pretty much like this for the whole book?

Purrfectpages @Megabooks I agree and I‘m not sure I am. This one will take a while to read and this time of year I‘m forced to have less time to read than I‘d like to. Just not sure I want to devote the little time I have to this, but I‘m trying! 2w

⭐️⭐️💫2.5 /5 stars While there were some nice passages about Cal's culture and family history, I would have given up on this book if it weren't for my book club. There was not enough about Calliope/Cal and too much about family stories and incest.

People were falling in love, getting married, going to drug rehab, learning how to ice skate, getting bifocals, studying for exams, trying on clothes, getting their hair cut, and getting born. And in some of those houses people were getting old and sick and were dying, leaving others to grieve. It was happening all the time, unnoticed, and it was the thing that really mattered.

Suet624 This reminded me of how much I liked this book. Thank you!

Pickpick

Eugenides spends a lot of time laying the groundwork in this Pulitzer Prize winner. The first half of the audiobook, which is over ten hours, isn‘t all that compelling, but it is necessary to fully understand this family saga that covers 3 generations of a closely knit Greek-American family. The second half is much more engaging. The narrator is above average. Overall rating: 4.30 stars.

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Fantastic book! 8mo

One of the best first lines ever! Eugenides captures the complexities of so many social issues, including the personal effects of the #Detroit67 riot. It's worth examining whether naming it Rebellion or Uprising is more useful in understanding its causes. It was, indeed, a long hot summer before my Junior year of High School. 💔 #MittenLitten #TimbitTunes @TheKidUpstairs @Cinfhen

"I was born twice: first, as a baby girl, on a remarkably smogless Detroit day in January of 1960; and then again, as a teenage boy, in an emergency room near Petoskey, Michigan, in August of 1974." These words caught my attention and made me buy the book, when I was mindlessly browsing in a bookstore. Until today it remains as one of my fav books of all time. I've never read a book about a hermaphrodite before, so this is a #UniqueRead to me ?⬇️

I found this in the library after not finding ‘The Virgin Suicides‘. I was drawn to the intersex main character, but worried I wouldn‘t finish it by the due date. I finished ahead of schedule! A compelling story of an intersex man‘s journey of identity growing up in middle class Midwest, and the family history that brought them all to that place, with all the good, the bad, and the ugly. The pace felt like a beautiful glissando on a grand piano.

Addison1 I plan to buy a copies for my family. I think Cal‘s experience might help them understand my identity a bit better as well. 1y

You know those books that you read again and again? This is that book for me. As with his Virgin Suicides debut, Eugenidea crafts characters in Middlesex that are are complex and compelling and pairs it with dramatic plots and intense, well-crafted writing. Middlesex is one part Greek tragedy, one park Shakespearean comedy, and all Detroit authenticity.
