Hermaphrodeity is the seriously comic tale of Millie/Willie, a girl who has no idea until shes sixteen that besides being fully female, she was born with undescended male organs. And she now stubbornly refuses to let surgeons make her single-sexed.
Millie/Willie isnt transsexual. Shes double-sexed.
In a visionary comedy Millie/Willie battles, inch by inch, from sensitive girlhood . . . to tough punk in a boys gang . . . to Harvard freshman who impregnates himself . . . to goddess seized for a primitive erotic ritual . . . to archaeologist who unearths the ultimate secret of manwomankind.
A comic epic, Hermaphrodeity was a finalist for the National Book Award.
