"When The Wake of the Unseen Object was published in 1991, I imagined it might reach readers as a work of "literary travel," a genre then filling the shelves at the front of bookstores. The understated arc of the book, after all, was the education of a traveler: his progress, from early awkward door-to-door questioning to a deeper understanding and sense of place. His lessons in paying attention and seeing the world as it is, unburdened by romanticism or its inverse, disillusion. His struggles to free himself from that peculiar little character who shows up briefly in Chapter Two, "the God of Things as They Ought to Be." This new edition of the book reproduces the text as it originally appeared, without corrections or updates. Terms such as "Eskimo" and "Indian," now subject to reconsideration but common and accepted in that day, remain in place, along with then-standard applications of the words "Inupiat" and "Inupiaq," as noun and adjective"--

Moby-Dick; or, The Whale is an 1851 novel by American writer Herman Melville. The book is the sailor Ishmael's narrative of the obsessive quest of Ahab, captain of the whaling ship Pequod, for revenge on Moby Dick, the giant white sperm whale that on the ship's previous voyage bit off Ahab's leg at the knee. A contribution to the literature of the American Renaissance, Moby-Dick was published to mixed reviews, was a commercial failure, and was out of print at the time of the author's death in 1891. Its reputation as a "Great American Novel" was established only in the 20th century, after the centennial of its author's birth. William Faulkner said he wished he had written the book himself, and D. H. Lawrence called it "one of the strangest and most wonderful books in the world" and "the greatest book of the sea ever written". Its opening sentence, "Call me Ishmael", is among world literature's most famous
