Well, I don't believe that in the case of "The Long Sun" (albeit I admit I'm
something of an ideological hermit on this count). But if you chose to adopt
my radical (but true) viewpoint, then perhaps it could improve your
enjoyment of the novel.

I say Incus is a woman passing as an augur, Chenille is a clone of Tussah
derived from only his X chromosome, and Hyacinth is not a woman except in
her soul (although I can't decide from my 4 or 5 available choices exactly
*what* she is).
