Middlesex. A flow Chart.

So, the universe sent me the most Flow-Chart-Worthy book to read this last week. 'Middlesex' by Jeffrey Eugenides. I had heard of this book, but had a totally whack perception of what it was about. In my mind, it was a gritty working class family tale set in a grungy London underbelly.


Wrong!


How bout a multi generational family tale about a Greek hermaphrodite? Awesome!!


It's like when you hear a DJ on the radio, then you see them and you say, "That is totally not what you look like."


And they say, "Shut up, weird stranger. I should know what I look like. This is it. I'm a Greek hermaphrodite."


This book is fantastic. I read it in about 24 hours. I didn't want to put it down. And when I did put it down, I was worrying about whether it was thinking about me a much as I was thinking about it. 


I don't think it was.


And then I made a flow chart.




I may have a flow chart addiction.....

  2. Whaaaaat? Great flow chart, I think I'll need to read the book. And for me, it will be exactly as I imagined it would be, because of you. And that flow chart.
