Janet Reno’s work, Ishmael Alone Survived, makes a comparison between Ishmael and Jonah.

If Janet Reno is entertaining fantasies of escape, no wonder. Reno came to Washington as someone whose integrity was beyond question and has seen herself cast as yet another Administration figure accused of lapses in ethical judgement

That Beah survived at all, let alone survived with any capacity for hope and joy at all, is stunning, and testament to. .This is a beautifully written book.

First, I have no idea why, prior to submitting this review Amazon requires check boxes with vague buzzwords like "suspenseful" and "full of surprises". Actually, I know exactly why they do it (searchability) but for a book like this it makes no sense. Anyway, that said, this is a book about a book - a very well known and little understood book commonly known as Moby Dick. This is not a political book and I don't know whether this Janet Reno is even the same Janet Reno whose name rings a bell with you.

If you've ever read Moby Dick you were probably, like the rest of us, somewhat befuddled by the constant digressions into technical facts around whales and the whalery and shipwrights and all sorts of other meanderings that accompanied and sometimes obfuscated the "plot" of the book. In this dissertation-gone-book Janet Reno attempts (smartly and convincingly) to harmonize these meanderings with each other and with the dramatic elements of the story and thereby bring the entire book together into a unfied meaning. She does this by focusing first and solely on "Ishmael" in his personal capacity as the sole survivor of the disasterous wreck of the Pequod. Ishmael, a man who is compelled by natural human emotional needs to tell the story of the Pequod to someone - anyone - and in the process attempt to make sense of that disaster, rationalize his own miraculous survival when all others perished, and come to terms with his own culpability for the disaster. She does this with a carefully considered analysis of survivors and survivor guilt which is then applied to Ishmael and proven out using direct passages from Moby Dick. I ready Moby Dick nearly 20 years ago and it has lingered in my mind as a book of such complexity as to make it almost impossible to understand (as a literary work). That has always bothered me. Janet Reno's book, amazingly, has filled nearly all the gaps for me and helped me obtain both a very satisfying understanding of the book as a masterful literary piece and a personal connection to and appreciation of Ishmael and his tale andn how and why he tells it as he does. In short, where before the book was unrelatable I now have a sense of understanding and connection to it. And for this I am deeply indebted. For the record, I stumbled across this book in the library - purely by happenstance - and grabbed it on a whim.

This book was not written by Janet Reno the Attorney General, its another JReno who resides in D.C. Don't order this book if you are expecting to read about the thoughts of our head of Justice.
