Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides

In Literature on October 2, 2008 at 11:12 pm

In 2003 Middlesex won the Pulizter Prize for Fiction, and rightly so.  The story is told from the perspective of a 41 year old man whose life began as a female.  The book explains the creation of his recessive gene through family history, the struggle for self identity, sexual desire, and a journey for acceptance.  Middlesex is an incredible read and if you have not picked it up I highly recommend it.
