Moby Dick Big Read

A detail from The Whale by David AustinMoby Dick is 135 chapters long, and beginning this week, The Moby Dick Big Read is podcasting it a chapter a day.

(Podcasting a whale story…ha!)

Actress Tilda Swinton read chapter one; Captain Robert Hone, Lecturer in Nautical Studies at Plymouth University in the UK, read chapter 2; Benedict Cumberbatch, Stephen Fry, John Waters, and several scores of other known and unknown voices will be reading chapters. And each day’s link is accompanied by a piece of contemporary art inspired by the book.

Thoroughly looking forward to this.
