A dazzling triumph from the bestselling author of The Virgin Suicides--the astonishing tale of a gene that passes down through three generations of a Greek-American family and flowers in the body of a teenage girl. In the spring of 1974, Calliope Stephanides, a student at a girls' school in Grosse Pointe, finds herself drawn to a chain-smoking, strawberry blond clasmate with a gift for acting. The passion that furtively develops between them--along with Callie's failure to develop--leads Callie to suspect that she is not like other girls. In fact, she is not really a girl at all. The explanation for this shocking state of affairs takes us out of suburbia- back before the Detroit race riots of 1967, before the rise of the Motor City and Prohibition, to 1922, when the Turks sacked Smyrna and Callie's grandparents fled for their lives. Back to a tiny village in Asia Minor where two lovers, and one rare genetic mutation, set in motion the metamorphosis that will turn Callie into a being both mythical and perfectly real: a hermaphrodite. Spanning eight decades--and one unusually awkward adolescence- Jeffrey Eugenides's long-awaited second novel is a grand, utterly original fable of crossed bloodlines, the intricacies of gender, and the deep, untidy promptings of desire. It marks the fulfillment of a huge talent, named one of America's best young novelists by both Granta and The New Yorker. Middlesex is the winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.

The truth of life well lived is simple; it always has been. Throughout humankind's history, the Father/Mother God's guiding light has shone through a band of humble yet powerful brothers and sisters, masters all. The Great Brother-/Sisterhood of Light has shone the light of its love throughout the world during all of its evolution. Most of its loving membership has remained beyond the shadowy veil of human consciousness, but here and there, its presence has been felt directly on the Earth plane. Usually hidden away from the chaos and darkness of the world's busy highways and byways, the masters have remained anonymous to all but a few worthy souls who have dedicated themselves selflessly to the laws of love and truth, and have served humanity humbly in a thousand different ways throughout history. These are the disciples of the masters, souls who act as instruments stepping down the powerful frequencies of pure love into digestible portions that humanity can use to brighten its way
