Spanning eight decades and chronicling the wild ride of a Greek-American family through the vicissitudes of the twentieth century, Jeffrey Eugenides’ witty, exuberant novel on one level tells a traditional story about three generations of a fantastic, absurd, lovable immigrant family -- blessed and cursed with generous doses of tragedy and high comedy. But there’s a provocative twist. Cal, the narrator -- also Callie -- is a hermaphrodite. And the explanation for this takes us spooling back in time, through a breathtaking review of the twentieth century, to 1922, when the Turks sacked Smyrna and Callie’s grandparents fled for their lives. Back to a tiny village in Asia Minor where two lovers, and one rare genetic mutation, set our narrator’s life in motion. Middlesex is a grand, utterly original fable of crossed bloodlines, the intricacies of gender, and the deep, untidy promptings of desire. It’s a brilliant exploration of divided people, divided families, divided cities and nations -- the connected halves that make up ourselves and our world.

In the spring of 1974, Calliope Stephanides, a student at a girl's school in Grosse Pointe, Michigan, finds herself drawn to a chain-smoking, strawberry-blonde classmate with a gift for acting. The passion that furtively develops between them, as well as Callie's failure to develop, leads Callie to suspect that she is not like other girls. In fact, she is not a girl at all; due to a rare genetic mutation Callie is part girl, part boy.

People of Middlesex Borough in PDF, EPUB, Tuebl, Mobi and Kindle:

In 1913, a strong spirit of independence, strength of family, and desire for growth prompted a group of central New Jersey settlers to break away from the large town of Piscataway and form the borough of Middlesex. This spirit was perpetuated throughout the 20th century, accelerating the growth of a true American small-town community. People of Middlesex Borough: 1950–2008 celebrates the growth of this very special town in the second half of the 20th century. During this time period, there were major developments: schools were built and expanded and new housing developments and apartment complexes spurred the growth of the population. Parks and sports fields were established, and community services grew while local groups nurtured an already strong sense of communal awareness and responsibility. Family values, patriotism, and neighborliness have long been a part of Middlesex Borough’s history, a tradition that continues today.
