M.R. O’Connor asks the questions we didn’t think to pose. “Does foreign aid
perpetuate poverty? Did feminism give birth to Girls Gone Wild? Is species
extinction ever ok?” This last question is at the heart of her provocative book,
Resurrection Science, an exploration of efforts to save and even revive
animal species. From New York’s DNA equivalent to Noah’s Ark, to San
Diego’s Frozen Zoo full of animal tissues a la Walt Disney’s head, to a
Russian scientist going all Jurassic Park on wooly mammoths, and a
Harvard geneticist suggesting Neanderthals be bred with humans, O’Connor
visits the people and places involved in fighting extinction. Throughout she
keeps a straight face, even when she seems to have gone through the mirror.
Because ultimately efforts to fight extinction have implications for our own
survival, the resurrection of threatened species affecting us body and soul.
