"A novelist of dazzling ingenuity, Ghosh presents an engrossing tale that is at once a work of science fiction, a medical mystery, and a fascinating history of malaria research.... The plot unfolds like the involution of a hypertext, and the novel's clever subtext, which pits India's age-old wisdom and faith against Western science and England's colonial arrogance, is scintillating." --"San Francisco Chronicle"Ghosh unseams both chronology and distance with a Borgesian flair."--"The New Yorker"A rollicking ride between the past and the future, real and imagined history, science and counterscience."--"Los Angeles Times
From the Publisher:
A novel of Fevers, Delirium and Discovery
In the not-too-distant future, a computer-bound desk clerk in New York City unearths an abandoned ID card which leads him to investigate the truth of what happened in a tropical laboratory in the 1890s, a truth in which the past, present and future all play a mysterious part. "Devilishly readable" Daily Telegraph; "Ingenious...combines the suspense of a Victorian melodrama with the fascination of a scientific thriller" Guardian
