So what is “Calamity Physics”? Can you help me please, perhaps with your own examples, real or imagined…? I’ve been finding piles of this book (click for larger view) in a number of places…such as in the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books on the weekend. Either way, it is a great title, “Special Topics in Calamity Physics”, Marisha Pessl. Have you read it? I have not, but it does look like fun. Tell us more, if you’ve read it (no spoilers). I’ve noticed that it has received a lot of impressive reviews and breathless blurbs.
You can get a lot of entertainment by just visiting the book’s website. It has an excellent interactive graphic which will keep you engaged for many happy minutes!
I still want to know what Calamity Physics is, though. Any thoughts?
