Flush it Friday: You’ve Pequod My Interest
I never knew that there was more to New Bedford, MA than the rusting shipyards, heroin and extreme violence. But lo and behold, this fallen city was once the heart of the whaling industry in the golden era of American whaling. (As a New England owl, I can’t help but feel a tingle of excitement in my tailfeathers upon reading about all of the familiar locales.) Eric Jay Dolin’s fantastic history of the enterprise, Leviathan (no not that shiddy black merol band Richter squirts out his blowhole for lmao #gottim), goes down like the smoothest grog, with fascinating anecdotes and facts leaking off every page. Highly recommended—not unlike the following articles!
