Our take

"Middlesex" by Jeffrey Eugenides is an ambitious novel that seamlessly blends elements of family saga, coming-of-age story, and social commentary. Set in the 20th century, the novel follows the intersex protagonist, Cal Stephanides, as they navigate the complexities of identity, gender, and sexuality. Stephanideses story - as Greek refugees in the U.S. - intermingles with the broader historical narrative, exposing the rift between multiple ideas - nature vs. nurture, white vs. black, old vs. new. While it’s a long read full of characters and often conflicting ideas, it’s also funny and masterfully written.

Publisher's description

So begins the breathtaking story of Calliope Stephanides and her truly unique family secret, born on the slopes of Mount Olympus and passed on through three generations.

Growing up in 70s Michigan, Calliope’s special inheritance will turn her into Cal, the narrator of this intersex, inter-generational epic of immigrant life in 20th century America.

Middlesex won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
