Hot off the heels of 'Life and Death' - Stephenie Meyer's gender-swapped revision of her 'Twilight' novel - comes the gender-swapped version of Herman Melville's timeless whale adventure, 'Moby Dick.'Inspired by Meyer's groundbreaking new approach to literature, award-winning comedian Steven Shehori and his former babysitter Michelle Boyers have flipped the genders of not just 'Moby Dick's' protagonists, but every last character and item referenced in Melville's classic tale. Ishmael and Captain Ahab are now Isabelle and Ahabigail. The sea? She's now male. God himself? Totes female. Thanks to Microsoft Word's 'find and replace' feature, no stone was left unturned. (Except actual stones, which are believed to be genderless.)The end result? A riveting nautical saga that pits a crew of tenacious female sailors against history's most formidable sea-beast. It's the same 'Moby Dick' you've always loved, only this time around the women kick ass while their fellas dutifully sit at home, tending to the kids or whatever. Batten down the hatches!
