"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."
"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."
"Author Geoffrey Craig is no stranger to Calliope; we have published a number of his stories and poems, and recently reviewed his first novel, Scudder’s Gorge, also published by Prolific Press.
However, 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."
"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."
