From the Archives: Putting the “T” in GLBT

By Susan Harris

First published in our December 2007 Departures issue, Gaute Heivoll's  "Dr. Gordeau" follows a Norwegian man on an ominous trip to an unnamed country in search of a sex change. Seeking the elusive surgeon of the title, Anders moves numbly between the sinister clinic, the roiling market, and his vaguely hostile hotel, fighting a mounting sense of urgency and dread.  Alienated and disoriented, he gets caught in a sandstorm, the swirling maelstrom a reflection of his inner tumult. It's a hallucinatory portrait of a persona in transition.
