Ahab's Rolling Sea, with author Richard King
Richard J King sails in to Gibson's to present Ahab's Rolling Sea: A Natural History of "Moby-Dick", a book sure to delight the naturalists among us. From white whales to whale intelligence, giant squids, barnacles, albatross, and sharks, Richard J. King examines what Melville knew from his own experiences and the sources available to a reader in the mid-1800s, exploring how and why Melville might have twisted what was known to serve his fiction.
