Hailed as an American epic, Middlesex chronicles the story of an immigrant family from Greece and their genetic secrets. Jeffrey Eugenides’ Pulitizer Prize-winning novel takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster ride as he deftly and beautifully weaves social commentary with humor, insight and intelligence. Twelfth Night fans will no doubt be reminded of the gender stereotypes portrayed on stage as they read this magnificent coming-of-age tale.
