Editorial Reviews

“Like that second the in its title, Log of the S.S. The Mrs. Unguentine is a stubborn creation that demands attention, and that odd surname is right on the money: This formally seamless book stings and soothes, like the most potent ointment, applied to literature too content to play it far too safe.”
Chicago Tribune
“While Crawford's novel brings to mind the great literature of the sea (Moby-Dick, Mutiny on the Bounty, "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner"), he doesn't allude to it; he doesn't have to. Log of the S.S. the Mrs. Unguentine—the book's most inelegant passage is its title—is a brave and audacious novel whose style, structure, story and language come together like strands of hemp spliced into an intricate knot.”
The Village Voice
“No one captures the mind of a control freak like Stanley Crawford.”
