Dear Mr. Eugenides,
I am in the currently reading Middlesex, and I want to tell youthat I can not put it down. I love the way you detailed (most interestingly) every moment. Is there going to be a movie? I would love to audition for it if that ever came about.
I just wanted to commend you and tell you how I love the way you write, you are without a doubt one of the most superb writers around. I want to read more and more and more of your works!

Dear Mr. Eugenides,

I just finished your astounding novel Middlesex. I am a prolific reader, yet your book was a rare treat. Since I've always been a Tolstoy fan, I recognized some of his epic, yet deeply psychological tendencies in this novel. Not only was it profoundly meaningful, but also page-turning entertainment. If it takes you nine years and a move to another continent to put out works of that caliber, I say, carry on, and my hat's off to you. Thanks for restoring my faith in our genetics, that they are not becoming so watered down or mutated that great talent is no longer possible.

Dear Mr. Eugenides,

I own a first edition copy of Middlesex that is in Fine condition. I would be very appreciative if you would autograph it for me. How do I go about sending you my copy for you to sign, if you are willing to do so?

Thank you for considering my request.
