The Lobster Chronicles : After seventeen years at sea, Linda Greenlaw decided it was time to take a break from being a swordboat captain, the career that earned her a prominent role in Sebastian Junger's The Perfect Storm and a portrayal in the subsequent film. She felt she needed to return home, to a tiny island seven miles off the Main coast with a population of seventy year-round residents, thirty of whom were her relatives. She would pursue a simpler life; move back in with her parents; become a professional lobsterman; and find a man and settle down. But almost none of this works out as planned, and soon she is forced to reevaluate everything she thought she knew about life, luck, and lobsters. In this hilarious and moving true story, Greenlaw reveals her keen eye for the dramas of small-town life, as well as her talent for fascinating nautical description.
