I finished reading this book about 8 months ago, and I remember it as an interesting, insightful book about life as a hermaphrodite.
The book spans eight decades, and three generations of a Greek family who migrate to America in the 1920s. The main plot is told by 41-year-old Cal, who was born with an indeterminate gender. Raised as a girl, Cal realises that this was the wrong decision, and reverts to being male at the age of 18.
The first half of this book was pretty average – the relationship between the grandparents didn’t seem very plausible. The second half of the book, however, was one of the best pieces of writing I have ever read. It was touching, clever and I couldn’t put it down. Highly recommended – especially for reading groups.
