Mrs. Caliban
Mrs. Caliban
Rachel Ingalls

Who doesn't secretly want a frog monster boyfriend? —Recommended by Cassie & Vanessa

Now back in print, Mrs. Caliban is "totally unforgettable" (The New York Times Book Review) and “something of a miracle” (The New Yorker)

In the quiet suburbs, while Dorothy is doing chores and waiting for her husband to come home from work, not in the least anticipating romance, she hears a strange radio announcement about a monster who has just escaped from the Institute for Oceanographic Research… Reviewers have compared Rachel Ingalls's Mrs. Caliban to King Kong, Edgar Allan Poe’s stories, the films of David Lynch, Beauty and the Beast, The Wizard of Oz, E.T., Richard Yates’s domestic realism, B-horror movies, and the fairy tales of Angela Carter―how such a short novel could contain all of these disparate elements is a testament to its startling and singular charm.
