To paraphrase its opening lines, Cal is born twice – first as an infant girl and again at age 14, as a boy. A genetic mutation (related to an astonishing family history) has made him intersex. This poignant story spans multiple generations of a Greek-American family. Eugenides cleverly explores the subjects of gender identity, nature versus nurture, and the immigrant experience. Oh, and it’s also a joy to read. Opa!

Perfect for:

  • Readers who enjoy multi-generational epics.
  • Those interested in an intersex, main protagonist.
  • Lovers of literary fiction: this bestseller is beloved by everyone from the critics to Oprah.
