A Princess of Roumania

A Princess of Roumania - Paul Park From the 2008 Tiptree Award Honor List: I loved the Paul Park's series: it pokes deeply into power and gender relations and constructions. What I loved about the series was Park's attempt to examine typical gender roles and deconstruct them. Andromeda was fascinating: she began as a teenage girl, then we find she was once a soldier, and now she is all of these and her physicality mirrors her interior range. That play was what made me think: Tiptree!
