Review:

"Log of the S.S. The Mrs. Unguentine is a captivating short work almost beyond description." --Verlyn Klinkenborg, The New Yorker

"No one captures the mind of a control freak like Stanley Crawford." --Ed Park, The Village Voice

"I'll tell you a book I want to teach. Log of the S.S. The Mrs. Unguentine by Stanley Crawford. It's out of print. How can a book like that be out of print? If I wrote that book and it went out of print, I just don't know what I would do. I'd have to call the police, I think. --Deb Olin Unferth

Book Description Dalkey Archive Press, United States, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Dalkey. Language: English . Brand New Book. Forty years ago I first linked up with Unguentine and we made love on twin-hulled catamarans, sails a-billow, bless the seas. So begins the courtship of a certain Unguentine to the woman we know only as Mrs. Unguentine, the chronicler of their sad, fantastical tale. For forty years, they sail the seas together, alone on a giant land-covered barge of their own devising. They tend their gardens, raise a child, invent an artificial forest--all the while steering clear of civilization. Log of the S.S. The Mrs. Unguentine is a masterpiece of modern domestic life, a comic novel of closeness and difficulty, miscommunication and stubborn resolve. Rarely has a book so perfectly registered the secret solitude of marriage, how shared loneliness can result in a powerful bond. Seller Inventory # AAC9781564785121
