Product description


It is Melville who establishes the benchmark for what the short story can attain and allows us to set the standards by which all the other great writers of the form can be measured. (William Boyd)

Book Description

Also included in this volume are 'The Lightning-Rod Man', 'The Bell Tower' and a story written especially for the collection, 'The Piazza'. Taken together, these tales, in their masterful use of irony and concision, show the author of Moby Dick in a different light.
