Middlesex is Jeffrey Eugenides’ Pulitzer prize winning novel about a hermaphrodite, Calliope Stephanides, the family who made her, and her journey from being her father’s little girl to being his youngest son. 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.

Jeffrey Eugenides (Author). Eugenides weaves together a kaleidoscopic narrative spanning 80 years of a stained family history, from a fateful incestuous union in a small town in early 1920s Asia Minor to Prohibition-era Detroit; from the early days of Ford Motors to the heated 1967 race riots; from the tony suburbs of Grosse Pointe and a confusing, aching adolescent love story to modern-day.
In Middlesex, Jeffrey Eugenides deliberately violates one of the basic conventions of narrative fiction. His first-person narrator, Cal, is consistently allowed to know what has gone on in the heads of several of the other characters. He is, as the critical jargon has it, "omniscient" – impossibly so. Near the end of this long novel, Cal is telling us of the death of his estranged father, Milt, in a somewhat farcical car accident. At the time, Cal is thousands of miles away and finds out what has happened only when his brother tells him over the phone.

Middlesex is set against the backdrop of several historical events: the war between Greece and Turkey, the rise of the Nation of Islam, World War II, and the Detroit riots. What is next for Cal? Does the author give us reason to believe that Cal’s relationship with Julie will be successful? "Watching from the cab, Milton came face-to-face with the essence of tragedy, which is something determined before you’re born, something you can’t escape or do anything about, no matter how hard you try" (p. 426).
