      Caliban and the Witch, her titanic work on witch trials as a tool of early capitalism, will take your head apart and put it back together. Federici is not just relevant but getting more so.   Reviewers have compared Rachel Ingalls’s Mrs. Caliban to King Kong, Edgar Allan Poe’s stories, the films of David Lynch, Beauty and the Beast, The Wizard of Oz, E.T., B-horror movies, and the fairy tales of Angela Carter—how such a short novel could contain all of these disparate elements is a testament to its startling and singular charm.

    Sycorax and Caliban are Mrs. Baker 's pet rats, given to her by Lieutenant Baker back when the rats were babies and still cute. In the present, they're huge, scabby, and have yellow teeth. Holling thinks they look possessed, and everyone is terrified to go near them. The rats escape in October and spend much of the school year living in the walls and the ceiling of Mrs. Baker's classroom. Miranda and Caliban is a beautifully written book that flips the focus from the main protagonist in The Tempest to the only other (non-spirit) inhabitants of the isle, showing how Prospero’s actions affected those around this novel, it is Prospero who is the villain, and Miranda and Caliban are childhood companions who fall in love—tragically, since the story still basically follows.
