Jeffrey Eugenides: Middlesex (2002) - a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel mapping an exciting story of one Greek family that immigrated to the USA in with a transgender offspring. Primarily a coming-of-age story and family saga, the novel chronicles the effect of a mutated gene on three generations of a Greek family, causing momentous changes in the protagonist's life.
