Autobiographical novel set on a Pacific Island. Omoo is the sequel to this book. Cryptic, yet brilliant novel by the author of Moby Dick. According to Wikipedia: "Herman Melville (August 1, 1819 ndash; September 28, 1891) was an American novelist, short story writer, essayist and poet. His first two books gained much attention, though they were not bestsellers, and his popularity declined precipitously after only a few years. By the time of his death he had been almost completely forgotten, but his longest novel, Moby-Dick - largely considered a failure during his lifetime, and most responsible for Melville's fall from favor with the reading public - was recognized in the 20th century as one of the chief literary masterpieces of both American and world literature."
