Overview

Annabel by Kathleen Winter

Annabel (2010), primul roman semnat de Kathleen Winter, abordeaza cu profunzime, sensibilitate si indrazneala una dintre temele cele mai controversate ale epocii contemporane: identitatea sexuala. Intr-un sat pitoresc si indepartat de pe coasta Labradorului, unde rolurile barbatilor si ale femeilor sint guvernate de traditie, nasterea unui copil hermafrodit zguduie din temelii fericirea casnica a familiei Blake. Copilaria invaluita de mister a lui Wayne sta sub semnul ambiguitatii sexuale si al amenintarii cu demascarea publica. Lucrurile se complica si mai mult in momentul atingerii maturitatii sexuale, cind descopera ca organismul lui are capacitatea de a se reproduce singur. Kathleen Winter surprinde cu subtilitate si elocventa drama unui personaj singular, care se lupta sa-si gaseasca locul intr-o lume guvernata de tipare sexuale stricte, si in acelasi timp frumusetea inegalabila a peisajelor scaldate in luminile nordului din acest colt al Labradorului.
