Media Reviews

'Most recipes are uncomplicated, and all evoke the character of the beautiful, rustic land from which they come.' - PW.
'There are color photographs throughout of the recipes and island scenes. Strongly recommended.' - Library Journal
Comment: I believe the title on this book must have been changed late in the day as much of the publicity material refers to the book as Stuffed To The Gills, as do some of the online booksellers.

Linda Greenlaw and Martha Greenlaw Author Biography

Linda Greenlaw's first book, The Hungry Ocean: A Swordboat Captain's Journey (1999), spent more than six months on the New York Times bestseller list. The Lobster Chronicles followed in 2002, All Fishermen Are Liars in 2004 and Seaworthy in 20011. She is the winner of the U.S. Maritime Literature Award in 2003, and the New England Book Award for nonfiction in 2004. Time Magazine called her 2005 Recipes From a Very Small Island, co-authored with her mother Martha Greenlaw, a "must-have cookbook".

Before becoming a writer, Linda Greenlaw was America's only female swordfishing captain, a career that earned her a prominent role in Sebastian Junger's The Perfect Storm and a portrayal in the subsequent film. She is also featured on the Discovery Channel series Swords: Life on the Line.
