This illustration is inspired by Middlesex
, by Jeffrey Eugenides. The parts of that book that struck me the most were the ones that focused on the uncertainty and awkwardness surrounding the main character's body, particularly in that stage of adolescence when one teeters between child and teen, when the body from the waist up may be indistinguishably male or female. For whatever reason, I'm fascinated by intersex. Hence the pre-teens in their underwear.
This reminds me of our long walk/conversation in Harvard Square about Intersex and etc. Hmmm. Marvelously strange.ReplyDelete
