Mrs Caliban: Rachel Ingalls


Dorothy is a grieving housewife in the Californian suburbs. Her infant son, unborn child and dog have all just died; her husband is unfaithful; her only friend is an alcoholic. One day, the radio announces that a green-skinned sea monster has escaped from the Institute for Oceanographic Research – but little did she expect him to arrive in her kitchen. Muscular yet gentle, vegetarian and excellent at housework, Larry the frogman is a revelation – and their passionate affair goes beyond their wildest dreams. Rachel Ingalls’ ‘Mrs Caliban’ is a surrealist masterpiece, as dazzling today as it was four decades ago.
