$18.00
A new selection of Melville's darkest and most enthralling stories in a beautiful Pushkin Collection edition

Includes Bartleby, the Scrivener, Benito Cereno and The Lightning-Rod Man

A lawyer hires a new copyist, only to be met with stubborn, confounding resistance. A nameless guide discovers hidden worlds of luxury and bleak exploitation. After boarding a beleaguered Spanish slave ship, an American trader's cheerful outlook is repeatedly shadowed by paralyzing unease.

In these stories of the surreal mundanity of office life and obscure tensions at sea, Melville's darkly modern sensibility plunges us into a world of irony and mystery, where nothing is as it first appears.
