Comments for The Calcutta Chromosome

The Calcutta Chromosome:

I'm currently reading The Calcutta Chromosome by 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.
