Overview

THE STORY: Off the icy shores of Newfoundland, on a remote island, the Clarke family threatens to break apart. The father, Addison, a marine biologist, desperately pursues the ocean's most elusive creature—Architeuthis, the giant squid—while his estranged wife Marina freezes by degrees. Their son Harvey, after a near-drowning, is unable to speak. The family's grief and isolation are bottomless. Then, inexplicably, from out of the ocean, a man named Arthur walks into their lives…and the order of the natural world starts to collapse around them. Part horror story, part myth, THE MUCKLE MAN mixes science with folklore and domestic drama with high tragedy, to chilling effect.
