MEDIA REVIEWS

Herman Melville is best remembered for his novel Moby Dick, a masterpiece that sank his reputation and all but ended his career. Straitened economic circumstances forced this proud literary titan to accept a position as a customs inspector, and he died in near obscurity at the age of seventy-two. While these bare facts are true, William B. Dillingham's superb biography makes it clear that Melville continued to develop his skills as a writer until his death. . . . Dillingham's work proves that Melville still has the power to delight and perplex.
