Teaser Tuesday: Middlesex

As always, sponsored by MizB.
TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!
My Teaser:

The chief imperative in cases like mine was to show no doubt as to the gender of the child in question. You did not tell the parents of a newborn, "Your baby is a hermaphrodite."

Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides pg. 413

So far, I'm really liking this book but it's taking me longer to get through that I anticipated. Hopefully I can pick it up a bit this week!!

  1. I'm somewhere in this book as well, though I'm taking an awfully long time with it! It's really well-written! I cannot imagine what it would be like to be the doctor or the parents if this ever happens! Most especially the parents if they have to make a choice!
