Reviews

...perfect summer reading, especially if you happen to be spending the summer by the sea, or on it.--Adam Kirsch
Starred Review. Engrossing account...at once grand and quirky, entertaining and informative.
Leviathan is an exhaustive, richly detailed history of industrial American whaling...Dolin succeeds admirably at what he sets out to do: tell the story of one of the strangest industries in American history.--Bruce Barcott
