Description

The Whale meets the Bug in this condensed version of Melville’s classic, where Michael Maranda and the others of Parasitic Ventures Press have produced a ‘critical edition’ of the book in which the text has been reduced by using Microsoft Word’s AutoSummarize feature (with exceptions made for particularly important passages). Compressed to 4% of its original length, one chapter per page, see the “Whaling Voyage by One Ishmael” in a whole new way.
