Book of the week #5

This week's book of the week is: Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, this book by the author of The Virgin Suicides speaks on racial inequalities, gender roles, and family dynamics. With a charming wit, Eugenides tells a story that, especially if you enjoy classical literature and greek mythology, has many levels. While a lot of the subject matter could be called controversial, the writing makes these matters seem approachable and totally natural. One of my favorite works of fiction from the past decade!
