Millie or Willie. Thislegendary autobiography of M. W. Niemann earned nomination forthe National Book Award. It's a comic epic of sex, a subversivesaga of love. The mythic author's double-trouble organs--femaleand male both--inspire a battle, inch by inch, from sensitivegirlhood to tough punk in a boys gang, from geeky Harvard Man toalluring mistress of scientists and scions, from underagephysicist to stone age archaeologist, from father-motherhoodto fertility goddess, from hunted freedom fighter to visionarytycoon, from infamous prisoner accused of treason...to celebratedwinner of the Nobel Prize in Poetry. These are the tabooconfessions of a literary titan, a poet who pursued science,politics, and wealth. Even Divinity. Brilliant and learned,Hermaphrodeity romps through the disputed geography of sexuntil Millie/Willie, embodying the life force, plumbs theultimate secret of manwomankind.
