The Calcutta Chromosome:
I'm currently reading The Calcutta Chromosome
Amitav Ghosh. It's a speculative science and historical fiction novel that jumps across points in history
as it chases down the various themes and motifs. The cover art is supposed to be a mosquito but it reminds
me the wasps we have in California. Plus my husband has been playing Metroid
Prime (which he did get for me but I'm letting him play it first) and there are plasma wasps in the
game. I'm usually reading Calcutta Chromosome while he's playing so the two diegeses have blended together
in my mind, that of the book and that of the video game.
