On one of the great literary voyages, Mrs Unguentine (the narrator and her vessel) gives her awed, but exasperated, account of a dead marriage, an endless voyage, and a phantom husband. And the story is replete with lush organic architecture, Rube Goldberg-esque ideas and botanical colour. If you have ever desired to drift away from the world, or create an Eden, or enact the Fall, and if you think living with someone is inherently funny, you'll probably love this book.
