Notes
perhaps pervese, but it seems like Middlesex would be an excellent novel in which to study the middle voice.

On a first reading, I intend to pull all the instances of "get" that I don't miss. Afterwards, though, it's clear that Book I has a very interesting number of "pathetic fallacies" or "paysage d'état d'âme", doors, eyes, fires, all with a sense of sentient purpose !
