Steve points me to an except from E. O. Wilson’s new ant novel in The New Yorker. In the late 1990s I read Empire of the Ants, which had a significant ant-centric aspect. A friend who later went on to do graduate work in entemology borrowed it from me, and she must have liked it because I never did get it back. I have a feeling that Wilson’s Anthill isn’t going to become a classic like Watership Down, but I’d be happy to be proven wrong….
