Ms. Greenlaw spoke about her book, The Lobster Chronicles: Life on a Very Small Island, published by Hyperion. Sebastian Junger wrote about her experiences as a swordboat captain in his book, The Perfect Storm, and an actress portrayed her in the subsequent film. The Hungry Ocean: A Swordboat Captain’s Journey is her own account of that lifestyle. After 17 years at sea, she returned home to an island off the Maine coast with a population of 70 year-round residents, 30 of whom were her relatives. The Lobster Chronicles is about her experiences there. She moved back in with her parents and became a professional lobsterman, and she had hopes of finding a husband and having children. But all did not go as planned. She had difficulty catching the lobsters, and she failed to run across any eligible bachelors. close
