Herman Melville’s short story, “Bartleby the Scrivener: A Story of Wall Street,” about a strangely resistant office worker, is a favorite of ours.

You may enjoy my adaptation and performance of the story, as broadcast today on the [i]Arts Express[/i] radio program on WBAI 99.5 FM NYC.

My girlfriend at the time (1990s) bought me a copy of Bartleby the Scrivener for my birthday. Was she trying to tell me something? I never got around to reading it.
