Doreen Dalesandro asked M.R. Carey:

I loved your book. I found the biological aspects very interesting. Do you have a background in science?

M.R. Carey Hi Doreen. No, I studied literature at university. I do *read* a lot of popular science books - including pretty much everything that Stephen Jay Gould has written, and more recently the utterly splendid Parasite Rex, by Carl Zimmer. I think some of that stuff (especially the Jay Gould essays) is hovering in the background of GIRL.
