  "Middlesex" by Jeffrey Eugenides - Salon
Even the steadily flowing mythic subtext of "Middlesex" -- Cal's self-comparisons to Tiresias, the seer who also changed genders, and to the Minotaur, which was also half one thing and half another -- is best understood literarily rather than literally.
An explanation for Calliope's lack of breasts, hips or menstrual periods has at last emerged, in part because of a not-quite-lesbian romance with a fellow student, which is rendered, for all its unlikeliness, in exquisite and utterly convincing detail.
"Middlesex" begins as a generous, tragicomic family chronicle of immigration and assimilation, becomes along the way a social novel about Detroit, perhaps the most symbolic of American cities, and incorporates a heartbreaking tale of growing up awkward and lonely in '70s suburbia.

 Middlesex - Jeffrey Eugenides
"Middlesex, Jeffrey Eugenides's big, messy, intermittently amusing new novel, seems to make a similar jangling sound as it comes down the pike, top-heavy as it is with every reference that could possibly be relevant to the Greek experience in America.
The narrator of Middlesex, Calliope ("Cal") Helen Stephanides, is upfront with readers about what to expect, the novel beginning straight-off with the disclosure: "I was born twice: first, as a baby girl (...) and then again, as a teenage boy".
Middlesex is a family saga, but Eugenides does a poor job of presenting family: these are individuals whose paths sometimes cross, and while there are times when the relationships (the love, the hate, the needs) are clear and the mutual interactions made manifest most of the time they remain individuals, islands all.

 Bookreporter.com - MIDDLESEX by Jeffrey Eugenides
Cal Stephanides, the amiable narrator of MIDDLESEX, Jeffrey Eugenides' big, beguiling treat of a second novel, is born with externally deceptive genitalia.
MIDDLESEX is a cleverly post-modernized successor to the likes of Howard Fast's THE IMMIGRANTS series, engrossing multi-generational bestsellers that were popular in the Nixon era, when Cal Stephanides and Jeffrey Eugenides were growing up.
Even the most eccentric subplots of MIDDLESEX (a Muslim temple scam, a tension-fraught car chase, the invention of hot dogs that flex like biceps) are imbued with a tender, familial warmth that leads the reader to accept them with relative ease.
