Meet the Author

Born on 1st August 1819 in New York City, USA, Herman Melville was a novelist, poet, and short story writer.
From an early age, Melville was fascinated with words and stories. Even though a bout of scarlet fever left him with impaired eyesight, he continued to be a voracious reader and writer throughout his life.
Melville's life was certainly just as full of drama and excitement as his novels. In 1847, he joined a mutiny on a ship where the crew were arguing with the owners over their share of the profits. For this, Melville was thrown into a jail in Tahiti. He escaped from the prison without too much difficulty and was later able to use the experience to write the novel entitled Omoo.
In his later years, Melville suffered due to ill-health and the loss of two sons, he died in April 1891. His life had been a difficult one and his literary merits had reaped him little profit.

Worst way of throwing away 3 dollars. Translation is poor (at best), there's no text formatting and there's no TOC. Shame on Barnes for having this thing on their store
