Format: Paperback
Like the best food and travel writing, LOBSTER SHACKS draws you into the scenery and its cuisine through wonderfully engaging people--the cooks and proprietors of some 60 lobster shacks along the New England coast. This makes the reading fascinating even before the trip begins.

But then the trip becomes irresistible--the ocean, the beaches, the rocky coves as much as the lobster rolls, velvety claws, and sumptuous feasts of seafood and sides at the lobster shacks.

The generosity of Urban's writing and the thoroughness of his research grant the reader a breezy expertise in such things as ways lobsters are cooked, how they change from season to season, where they thrive, and how they are caught.

The author's vivid photos of places and people make this not only a detailed guide to where to go and what to eat but also a volume of souvenirs, of where you've been and what you ate and how wonderful it all was. I am grateful to Urban for the reminder to go back to Kennebunkport fot the best (winter) lobster I ever had, to Newport in winter also, to Gloucester and Cape Ann--and then to go farther, as he has in mapping precise directions to timeless pleasures.

Can't wait to do the New England coast and try as many of these places as possible. Don't think anyone, at least me could ever get enough, let alone too much Lobster!

I bought this as a gift and the recipient was thrilled as they are planning a trip to New England next summer. It arrived very promptly and in excellent condition.

I live in CT and was excited to get this for a friend's birthday. We both love lobster, especially hot butter lobster rolls, so I think she'll really enjoy reading about all the places the author visited.
