That iconic first line, you know it even if you haven’t read the book.

And then there’s the movie. Remember Gregory Peck as Captain Ahab? One briny adrenaline rush after another.


Here’s an invitation from A New Ishmael.

The stories of Call Me Ishmael are as singular as the books the storytellers choose. 

Phoned in by booklovers like us.  Have a story to tell?



Here’s my favorite one about the Dictionary and heartache.



And this one, told by a man who grew up with Sneetches and civil rights.



Call Me Ishmael is one enthralling literary voyage. The tales are here, in the belly of the whale at Buzzfeed.
