Best novel I've read in 10 years. It's about a character who undergoes "racial reassignment surgery" after a self-diagnosis of "racial dysmorphia" - born white and Jewish and now living as a post-op African American. Book was published about 9 months before the Rachel Dolezal headlines hit - it's challenging in all the right ways.
