July 2020 Book of the Month

Every month, Bookstonian picks a book we recommend to readers.

This month's pick is Moby Dick by Herman Melville, published by Penguin Classics.

First published in 1851, Herman Melville’s masterpiece, Moby Dick, is one of the greatest works of imagination in literary history. Over a century and a half after its publication, Moby-Dick still stands as an indisputable literary classic.

It is the story of an eerily compelling madman pursuing an unholy war against a creature as vast and dangerous and unknowable as the sea itself.

This Penguin Classics deluxe edition features a foreword by Nathaniel Philbrick and cover art by Tony Millionaire.
