About the Author

Amitav Ghosh was born in Calcutta in 1956. He is the author of two novels: "The Shadow Lines "and "The Circle of Reason," and of the non-fiction work, "In An Antique Land." He lives in New York.


"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"
