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…
Mrs. Caliban by Rachel Ingalls is a quiet, bizarre masterpiece, like a Richard Yates novel adapted into a B-movie. Heralded by Ursula K. Le Guin, John Updike, and Joyce Carol Oates, the novel has been passed around writers’ hands since its original publication in 1982. Now finally back in print, Ingalls’s “totally unforgettable” (New York Times) and “something of a miracle” (New Yorker) novel is poised to be cherished by another generation of readers.
Rivka Galchen (Little Labors) and Christine Smallwood will discuss the novel, followed by Galchen and Hampton Fancher (Blade Runner, Blade Runner 2049) reading an excerpt of Fancher’s screenplay adaptation of Mrs. Caliban.Buy tickets/get more info now
