Summary
"With this third volume of Melville, all of his fiction is now available in The Library of America. Here, beginning with the turbulent pages of Pierre, Melville forgoes the narratives of the sea that prevailed in his six earlier works, culminating in Moby-Dick. Melville's later works contain some of his finest writing and many of his keenest and bleakest observations of life, not on the high seas, but at home in America"--From publisher description
