Is GHOSH gauche? Let's educate him a bit in the history and development of climate fiction...

Interviewer in India asked him in June 2019 during his book tour there:
What about this new genre of climate fiction, dubbed cli-fi? Have you read any?

Dr GHOSH answered in his usual, par for the course, arrogant, uninformed and elitist manner:

''I have read a couple. The parameters of what they are calling climate fiction is that they are almost always dystopian and are set in the future. They have various kinds of catastrophic events, and so, in a way, after you have read a couple of them, you feel like you have read them all.''
