Middlesex is a magnificent, sweeping novel. The narrator, a transgender person, beautifully describes the history of his family starting in Greece and immigrating to Detroit. The family history is entwined with the history of the places, which Eugenides brings to life. The narrative also explores the human desire to neatly fit people into one gender and the narrator’s struggles to find an identity within a body that is Middlesex.
