Why is Middlesex divided into four books? How much of Cal is female, and how much of Calliope is male? Do you feel that Eugenides explores Cal's personality, or should he have described his narrator more thoroughly? What allusions to Greek literature and mythology are included in Middlesex? A site dedicated to book lovers providing a forum to discover and share commentary about the books and authors they enjoy. Author interviews, book reviews and lively book commentary are found here. Content includes books from bestselling, midlist and debut authors.

Middlesex tells the breathtaking story of Calliope Stephanides, and three generations of the Greek-American Stephanides family, who travel from a tiny village overlooking Mount Olympus in Asia Minor to Prohibition-era Detroit, witnessing its glory days as the Motor City and the race riots of before moving out to the tree-lined streets of suburban Grosse Pointe, Michigan. See Plot Diagram Summary Book 1 Middlesex begins with the narrator, Cal Stephenides, introducing the peculiar circumstances surrounding his birth. Cal will be born again at 14, although not in the traditional, baptismal sense. Rather he will be reborn a boy after 14 years as a girl.

Middlesex, a Pulitzer Prize winning novel by Jeffrey Eugenides, spans the lives of three generations of the Stephanides family. Protagonist Calliope (Cal) Stephanides undergoes a spiritual rebirth as he comes to terms with his family’s history and how it inevitably led to his hermaphroditic birth. The story takes place in in Bithynios.   Though Middlesex's leading man(Cal)/lady(Callie) is a hermaphrodite, the book spends only a few of its pages exploring what it is like to view, or experience, the world from the perspective of both sexes at once. So if this is what you are looking for in the book, you will surely be disappointed.5/5(4).
