«Middlesex ist ein unerhörter, wunderbarer Roman.» (Jonathan Franzen) In einem kleinasiatischen Bergdorf fängt alles an. Ein junger Mann und eine junge Frau, Bruder und Schwester, fliehen vor den Türken nach Smyrna und, als die Stadt brennt, nach Amerika. Es ist das Jahr 1922. Auf dem Schiff heiraten sie und lassen sich später in der Autostadt Detroit nieder. Niemand ahnt das Geheimnis dieses Paares, doch nach Jahrzehnten hat der Tabubruch der beiden ungeahnte Folgen. «Locker, vielschichtig, tiefgründig, genial.» (Die Welt) «Eugenides ist ein Erzähler, der seine Leser schamlos in seinen Bann zu schlagen versteht. Und sein Buch ein Geschenk an die literarische Welt.» (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) «Ein spannender, origineller und sehr witziger Roman.» (Der Spiegel) «Ein wunderbares Buch, reich an Geschichte und Geschichten, an Liebe, Glück Leid, Trauer und Tiefsinn, an Witz und an Fabulier- und Erinnerungslust.» (Bernhard Schlink)

Middlesex Illustrations

Middlesex, squeezed up as it is among more expansive beauties, and too much overshadowed by the chimneys of Greater London, may not be thought of as a show county. But no shire need hang its head that contains such scenery, still hardly spoiled, as can be found about Hampstead Heath, Enfield Chase, Harrow Weald, and the leafy heights of Pinner, with many islets of pleasant greenery not yet drowned in the brick-and-mortar deluge. Its very misfortune of being so near a rich city contributes one feature of ornament in notably frequent parks, pleasure grounds, and gardens. Then its hills, vales, and woods can boast a special interest in having perhaps inspired more of our great poets than has any larger English county. The writer has explored it in every corner, marking out charms often neglected by those who hurry over its dusty or muddy high roads to reach neighbouring bounds that have not always a better right to give themselves airs of rurality.
