7 Down, 55 To Go

Middlesex, by Jeffrey Eugenides

Middlesex is a novel I found myself savoring, longing for every subplot to last forever. The magically written story of a genetic male raised as a female, it combines historical fiction, romance, and psychological drama in a way few books have. Many thanks to Valerie, Erin of Mannequin Hands, and Kari for the recommendation.

Book number 7 is The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat, by Oliver Sacks a selection of essays exploring rare neurological disorders. This book has been on my radar for a couple of years, so when Cathy of Bent Back Tulips recommended it, I took it as a sign that the time is now.
