It’s my first Melville.

When Rory and Dean are walking to Miss Patty’s to find Dean a job, he asks her, “How are you liking Moby Dick? ” Rory says, “Oh, it’s really good. It’s my first Melville.”

Oh, Rory.

“Moby Dick; or, The Whale” is a novel written by Herman Melville. Other “Melvilles” that Rory might have gone on to read include “The Confidence Man: His Masquerade” and “Pierre; or, The Ambiguities.” However, Moby Dick is by far the most well-known of Melville’s works.
