One needn't have read MOBY-DICK in order to enjoy this account of its famous author. Herman Melville's life was an adventure in itself, full of seafaring images and endless quests for recognition. Elizabeth Hardwick explores the history of Melville's prominent family in detail, relating gripping episodes of financial strife. Karen White performs her job impeccably--this book is less "read to" than "shared with" the listener. White's smooth performance allows the information to take center stage, and it does so with style and maximum comprehensibility. This audiobook does the masterful job of informing and entertaining at the same time. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 01]
