The author of the eternal classic Moby Dick is the subject of this superb biography, written with an award-winning novelistic flair. This "story of the creative history of an extraordinary American genius" -- a masterwork of critical commentary itself -- reflects the new popular surge of interest in one of American literature's founding fathers. Melville seduced the public with his travel romances based on his voyages as a whaleship deckhand but failed to win praise for his epic novel Moby Dick.
