Mrs. Caliban

A Novel

calibanA depressed California housewife enamored with the strange elopes with a fugitive from the local aquarium, a six-foot-seven creature known as “Aquarius the Monsterman,” beginning a curious romance that is both subtly whimsical and disturbingly fascinating. The improbable story of her relationship is a fantasy and a parable for the insanity of modern life. Rachel Ingalls grew up in Cambridge and held many odd jobs, from librarian, to manuscript reader, to theatre dresser.


"I loved Mrs. Caliban. So deft and austere in its prose, so drolly casual in its fantasy..."- John Updike
