BOOK RIOT
How’re you enjoying the book? my dad asked in a rare email message, shipboard communications being what they are. Like a Zen student before the Zen master, I wrote back: I like Queequeg.

He’s the tattooed idol-worshipping harpooner, a savage, a sight on the island of Nantucket among the upright self-righteous Puritans. I like him because he’s not afraid to be innocent, and in his innocence, to exhibit the most heart.
