This Week in Watery Writing

March 27, 2011

The New Yorker draws our attention to Donovan Hohn’s Moby-Duck. The book’s title, cover and concept are beautiful.  I find myself inexplicably resistant to the idea of actually reading the book—I fear that like the New Yorker itself, the book will captivate me but leave me wanting that time back once I put it down—but it does remind me that it’s time to re-read Moby Dick.

New York discusses Bloomberg’s 10-year plan to reclaim the city’s waterfront.

And, once upon a time, John Keats toasted a Mermaid Tavern.
