A terrific book -- I can well understand how it won a Pulitzer! The historical settings in Greece and the U.S. are fascinating and taught me much I had not previously known, but the marvelous characterizations are the highlight of the novel. My highest recommendation.

An interesting look at the life of a hermaphrodite. Issues which I never thought of come up as you read. The hero/heroine ultimately changes genders and adjusts to life away from his/her family and friends before he is reconciled to the adult world as a man. The topic was handled with grace and insight by the author.
