Why Read Moby-Dick?

Written by Nathaniel Philbrick | Narrated by Nathaniel Philbrick
Classic novels are classic for a reason… right? This “brilliant and provocative” work of nonfiction (The New Yorker) makes the case for why Moby-Dick should remain mandatory reading! Narrated by the author whose “evangelistic passion [comes] through so clearly that one is soon avidly engaged in parts one may have hurried through in school” (AudioFile).


A “brilliant and provocative” (The New Yorker) celebration of Melville’s masterpiece-from the bestselling author of In the Heart of the Sea and Valiant AmbitionOne of the greatest American novels finds its perfect contemporary champion in Why Read Moby-Dick?, Nathaniel Philbrick’s enlightening and entertaining tour through Melville’s classic. As he did in his National Book Award-winning bestseller In the Heart of the Sea, Philbrick brings a sailor’s eye and an adventurer’s passion to unfolding the story behind an epic American journey. He skillfully navigates Melville’s world and illuminates the book’s humor and unforgettable characters-finding the thread that binds Ishmael and Ahab to our own time and, indeed, to all times. An ideal match between author and subject, Why Read Moby-Dick? will start conversations, inspire arguments, and make a powerful case that this classic tale waits to be discovered anew.“Gracefully written [with an] infectious enthusiasm…”-New York Times Book Review
