by Herman Melville
Melville's Moby Dick takes us on a quest to find the white whale, a quest that has many layers of meaning.
Herman Melville's Moby Dick is at once challenging and riviting, with young Ishmael as our narrator through a vast quest that takes us through many physical, philosophical, and cultural waters. I think it is simply the best American novel to date.
