Mrs. Caliban has got a little bit of everything: a Frankenstein-ian parable of scientific missteps and empathetic oddities on one hand, and on the other a lived-in, naturalistic portrait of a woman at a crisis point in her marriage. And the elements fit together so neatly! In and out in one-hundred pages, no faulty pieces, and numerous thoughts and emotions to untangle once the story reaches its end. Few books can feel so cozily familiar and so bracingly idiosyncratic in the same breath.
