Product description


"It is impossible to overstate the brilliance of Ghosh's literary skill.... This is at once a breathless page-turner of a detective story and a subtle, profound, complex and enthralling novel of ideas.... Enormous fun and almost frighteningly serious." -- The Toronto Star

"Enthralling.... both playful and deadly serious. Ghosh's novel winds up as richly complex as a strand of DNA." -- The Sunday Times

"An extremely ingenious novel about malaria research, oriental religion and computer science ... The Calcutta Chromosome combines the suspense of a Victorian melodrama with the fascination of a scientific thriller." -- The Guardian

"Well-crafted, intelligent and wildly inventive. To the medical mayhem, add a dash of ancient goddess cults, -- blood-letting in an abandoned mansion, ghost trains and transmigrating souls, and you have an irresistible brew that must be drained to the last drop." -- The Montreal Gazette

About the Author

Amitav Ghosh was born in Calcutta in 1956 and raised and educated in Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Iran, Egypt, India and the United Kingdom, where he received his Ph.D. in social anthropology from Oxford. Acclaimed for fiction, travel writing and journalism, his books include The Circle of Reason, The Shadow Lines, In an Antique Land and Dancing in Cambodia. His previous novel, The Glass Palace, was an international bestseller that sold more than a half-million copies in Britain. Recently published there, The Hungry Tide has been sold for translation in twelve foreign countries and is also a bestseller abroad. Ghosh has won France's Prix Medici Etranger, India's prestigious Sahitya Akademi Award, the Arthur C. Clarke Award and the Pushcart Prize. He now divides his time between Harvard University, where he is a visiting professor and his homes in India and Brooklyn, New York.
