Watson R (2007) "The unrest and movement of our century": the universe of The Wrecker, Journal of Stevenson Studies, 4, pp. 114-128.

R. L. Stevenson The Wrecker; modernity; a black comedy of capitalism and existential absurdity; absent fathers, discarded sons; art, travel, business; innocence and murder; a comedy of reversals
