Mrs. Caliban: A Novel

'“[An] ethereal, masterfully written book.” —Entertainment Weekly  “If you consume only one piece of art about a woman sleeping with a sea monster this year, my advice is to make it Mrs. Caliban.” —Literary Hub “Totally unforgettable. Rachel Ingalls has created a tight, intriguing portrait of a woman’s escape from unacceptable reality.” —Michael Dorris, The New York Times   “A tour de force.” —The Atlantic Monthly   “A masterpiece and totally off the wall.” —Electric Literature   “I loved Mrs. Caliban. So deft and austere in its prose, so drolly casual in its fantasy . . . but opening up into a deep female sadness that makes us stare.” —John Updike   “A perfect novel.” —The New Yorker   “Thirty-five years old, it is fresher than most things written yesterday. . . . Every one of its 128 pages is perfect, original, and arresting. Clear a Saturday, please, and read it in a single setting.” —Harper’s Magazine   “It is an adroitly structured short novel, modulating its emotions from first page to last with masterly touch.” —The Boston Globe   “Feminist social satire that’s deliciously weird.” —Elle   “Rachel Ingalls is more than a master storyteller: She is also a superb artist.” —Los Angeles Times   “The love story is a delight, the social commentary sharp, the writing funny and fun—and yet the sorrow, even bitterness, at the core of this book about our perfidious species is inescapable and profound.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review   “Rachel Ingalls is a remarkable writer, able to convey, in a single phrase or line of dialogue, an entire rounded scene. Her ear for speech and its content, both inflections and gestures, is faultless.” —The Spectator   “Every volume Rachel Ingalls has written displays the craft of a quite remarkable talent. Tales of love, terror, betrayal and grief, which others would spin out for hundreds of pages, are given the occluded force of poetry.” —The Independent  '
