Charis invites you to join the Reading Rainbow Book Club for lesbians and their friends. All are welcome to discuss this month's pick, Jefferey Eugenidies' Middlesex. All books are chosen by Reading Rainbow club members and members receive 10% off the book club pick from Charis Books and More.
Eugenides weaves together a kaleidoscopic narrative spanning 80 years of a stained family history, from a fateful incestuous union in a small town in early 1920s Asia Minor to Prohibition-era Detroit; from the early days of Ford Motors to the heated 1967 race riots; from the tony suburbs of Grosse Pointe and a confusing, aching adolescent love story to modern-day Berlin. Eugenides's command of the narrative is astonishing. He balances Cal/Callie's shifting voices convincingly, spinning this strange and often unsettling story with intelligence, insight, and generous amounts of humor.
