Staff Reviews


I am passionately interested in both whales and literature, so The Whale had a singular appeal to me. But, there are plenty of books out there on both subjects. What makes this title uniquely satisfying is the way that it rambles – in a very personal and informative fashion - through so many diverse topics en route to the unified subject of the title. It is a wonderfully unclassifiable study of whales, whaling, Moby Dick, Melville, and the places that have figured prominently to each.
