Happy Book Revolution 2014 Babes! Here's me with my copy of "Middlesex", by Jeffery Eugenides. It won the Pulitzer. I read fancy shit. Not all my reading is about drug addicts engaging in deviant sex, just most of it. I also read coming-of-age stories about hermaphrodites. This is a great book, but its been years since I read it. This is the follow up to Eugenides's debut novel "The Virgin Suicides", and it took him nine years to put this one out. He didn't merely avoid the sophomore slump, he bullied it, and stole its girlfriend.
