    Middlesex por Jeffrey Eugenides (LynnB, BookshelfMonstrosity)
    LynnB: Main character is a hermaphrodite and faces similar issues.
    BookshelfMonstrosity: Annabel follows the life of a hermaphrodite who was not masculine enough to please his father. The novel explores themes of family relations, gender roles, and sexual identity similar to those in Middlesex.

Really beautiful coming of age story. Written with a stark simplicity in keeping with the setting. Loved the complexity of the main characters challenge, and the contrast with the bleak directness of his environment

Ugghh.

I still have 100 pages left, but I can't contain myself any longer. I loved this book until a little after the halfway mark where the whole thing started to fall apart. The sensitivity and care shown towards the subject of an intersex person are completely destroyed by the author's sensational use of a biological impossibility on the main character. Why throw in a horrible urban legend instead of featuring the real issues and concerns an intersex person is faced with daily?

I also can't help but feel that the story itself would have been much more interesting if it had involved Annabel's coming to terms with the male/female duality of her nature, not merely focusing on the feminine half she had been denied. And don't even get me started on the heavy-handed symbolism of Annabel's friend, the girl who "lost her voice," or the rape scene haphazardly thrown in seemingly for the hell of it.

In other words, don't even bother reading this one. End of rant. ( )

This was a lovely character study with a vivid setting and very quiet tone. I responded to all of the charaters and their struggles. Very well-written. It was a similar topic to Middlesex but couldn't have been a more different story. My only major complaint was that I couldn't pick it up for brief moments; it was involve and atmosperic enough that I needed to devote longer periods of time while reading it. ( )

> Par Sonia Sarfati (LaPresse.ca) : Annabel: le troisième sexe
28 avr. 2012 ... Comme son titre l'indique, Annabel de Kathleen Winter suit le destin de... Wayne. Parce que Wayne est aussi Annabel. Il porte les deux sexes. Hermaphrodite, disait-on alors. Intersexué, dit-on aujourd'hui. Mais Annabel n'est pas une étude de cas. C'est un roman magnifique sur la différence.

Nominated for the three top Canadian literary prizes, this debut novel is beautifully written. There were passages and descriptions that I had to keep rereading, they just blew me away. I had some problems with the character development (the mother just fades away...), but most of the narrative rang true. The novel left me wanting more... ( )

Read it because it’s a story told with sensitivity to language that compels to the last page, and read it because it asks the most existential of questions. Stripped of the trappings of gender, [Kathleen] Winter asks, what are we? --The Globe & Mail, June 25, 2010

But can someone of two genders really find acceptance—even self-acceptance? Kathleen Winter explores that question in her utterly original debut novel, Annabel.
 
Annabel’s strength lies in probing the dilemma of sexuality and self-knowledge. I have never read such an intimate portrait of a person struggling to live inside a self that the world sees as a dreadful mistake. Born with the capacity to be both male and female, Wayne must become one and lose the other. His parents, too, must embrace a son and lose a daughter. In the end Wayne/Annabel’s mysterious, unachieved duality shimmers beside the streams of his birthplace like the mythical white caribou, while he has gone on to a compromised but acceptable existence elsewhere.

 
Finely observed detail and gut-wrenching honesty, together with some rich characters and a perfectly rendered world, make Annabel a rare treat, and [Kathleen] Winter a welcome new voice in Canadian writing. -- Winnipeg Free Press, June 26, 2010

Annabel, Annabel, where did you go? I've looked high and I've looked low. I've looked low and I've looked high... - Kat Goldman
Different though the sexes are, they intermix. In every human being a vacilliation from one sex to the other takes place, and often it is only the clothes that keep the male or female likeness, while underneath the sex is the very opposite of what it is above. - Virginia Woolf

Wayne Blake was born at the beginning of March, during the first signs of spring breakup of the ice - a time of great importance to Labradorians who hunted ducks for food- and he was born, like most children in that place in 1968, surrounded by women his mother had known all her married life: Joan Martin, Eliza Goudie, and Thomasina Baikie.
