Amitav Ghosh - Il cromosoma Calcutta
Italian | Neri Pozza | 2011 | ASIN: B007O24J9K |318 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

In questo straordinario romanzo Ghosh attinge a generi diversi - la fantascienza, la narrativa filosofica, il thriller – per costruire un profondo apologo sulla vulnerabilità del genere umano. Tutto ha inizio nel lontano 1898, con la scoperta del cromosoma Calcutta, una conquista scientifica apparentemente inspiegabile in base agli strumenti e alle conoscenze del tempo. In realtà, la scoperta contiene una «verità» che viene da lontano e si è tramandata attraverso le generazioni in maniera nascosta. Coloro che hanno provato a svelarla, o che si sono avvicinati senza permesso ai suoi segreti, sono morti o improvvisamente scomparsi. I personaggi eccentrici ancora in vita, che in qualche modo ne sono stati toccati, sembrano celare mille identità e segreti.
