John Clarke reviews the classics - Part II

Moby Dick - Herman Melville

Man meets whale. Man loses whale. Man tries to kill whale. Man loses leg. Whale finds man. Man loses marbles. Whale kills man. (Metaphors all over the place. Man v Nature, Life v Death, Dark v Light, Christian v Pagan, Arsenal v Manchester United.)

Listening to The Dearhunters - Red Wine & Blue
