"Essentially, Mr. Craig presents an unvarnished snapshot of Elizabethan England, warts and all. From the sewerage in the streets to the crowded markets to the squalor of plague riven 16th century London, he captures it all in well-researched detail.
Then against such harsh reality, he introduces Constance, Shakespeare’s imaginary younger sister."
- Garner Simmons, Author
"From immigration in the Trump era, to the War on Drugs, to the Depression and industrialization, with a hint of Morocco thrown in at the end, One-Eyed Man paints American masterpieces with pithy prose."
- Mari Carlson, Reviewer
"This novel is unique - what I’d consider a tour de force - a story in rhyme, originally written by Geoffrey Craig for his then young teenage daughter, Danielle."
- Sandy Raschke, Fiction Editor, “Calliope”
"Totally engrossing as you follow these few families through time. The author makes you feel as if you are there... on the land, in the woods... with his intimate descriptions of the landscape the characters interact with or move through.
The surprise ending is a wonderful modern take on our sometimes shameful history. Totally recommended."
- Harriet Schneider
In "One-Eyed Man and Other Stories", Craig reveals a common humanity writing as an “other” unlike his characters.
Notions of justice, home, forgiveness get turned on their heads as thoughtful characters grapple with these themes. Once mayor of a Hudson River Valley town, a Mexican immigrant loses popularity fighting to give other immigrants the chance no one gave him. A black drug dealer is more at home around rich white folks than his hooker sister – until she proves herself above her line of work. Can a black farmer forgive a hospital for failing to treat his snake-bit son because of his skin color? These stories ask more questions than they answer. The entertainment is in the probing unexpected twists and turns.
