About this title:
Synopsis:
After 17 years at sea, Linda Greenlaw decided it was time to take a break from being a swordboat captain, the career that would earn her a prominent role in Sebastian Junger's The Perfect Storm and a portrayal in the subsequent film. Greenlaw decided to move back home, to a tiny island seven miles off the Maine coast. There, she would pursue a simpler life as a lobsterman, find a husband, and settle down.

But all doesn't go as planned. The lobsters refuse to crawl out from under their rocks and into the traps she and her father have painstakingly set. Fellow islanders draw her into bizarre intrigues, and the eligible bachelors prove even more elusive than the lobsters. But just when she thinks things can't get worse, something happens that forces her to reevaluate everything she thought she knew about life, luck, and lobsters.

Filled with nautical detail and the dramas of small-town life, The Lobster Chronicles is a celebration of family and community. Greenlaw proves once again that fishermen are the best storytellers around.

About the Author:
Linda Greenlaw has been a deep-sea fisherman for 18 years, becoming the first and only female swordfish captain in the Grand Banks Fleet. This career earned her a prominent role in Sebastian Junger's runaway bestseller, The Perfect Storm and a protrayal in the subsequent film. She was raised in Maine and graduated from Colby College. Greenlaw now lives on Isle au Haut, Maine, where she captains a lobster boat.

From AudioFile:
In this follow-up to the author's bestseller, THE HUNGRY OCEAN, about her life as a swordfishing boat captain, Greenlaw has returned to her native Isle au Haut, Maine, to live with her parents, fish for lobster with her father as sternman, and hope for a chance to marry and start a family. Since the population of the island is 47 total, she is aware that the plan may have its flaws, but she gives us the year as it comes, making it vivid, salty, and real, a pleasure to read about if not to live through. Like many untrained readers, Greenlaw often rushes her words, but the account is so personal it's still a plus to have it in her own voice.
