"Captain Ahab was neither my first husband nor my last" This is designed to be remembered as one of the most recognized first sentences in literature. And Una Spenser, the triumphant hero at the centre of 'Ahab's Wife', may well become every bit as memorable as Ahab. As a child, Una's mother sends her to live in a lighthouse to protect her from her religion-mad father. Una finds early passion with a sailor and , disguised as a cabin boy, runs away to sea to encounter disasters, murder, romance of virtually every variety, and, of course the behemoths of the deep. We see Ahab before the white whale, Moby Dick, takes his leg and drives him to madness
