I just finished reading Middlesex by Detroit area author Jeffrey Eugenides. Absolutely brilliant. The history, the description, and the meticulously researched subject matter were interwoven marvelously. You will never look at Greektown or the Ambassador Bridge the same way again. I could not put down this 500 page mammoth. It is clear to see why it won the Pulitzer Prize.

    I share the exact same feelings, Mollika. I was surprised to discover others who didn’t like it very much, though, so at least now I know I am not alone in thinking it is an astonishing epic : )

    I loved it. The whole reason I picked it up in the first place was because I heard it was about Detroit. Great book.

    You’re about two months too late! Jeffrey Euginedes was at Marygrove College about a month ago talking about Middlesex and reading excerpts from it. It was a pretty cool event. Also, if you’ve never been to Marygrove, it’s a beautiful campus.
