My personal favorite is

"Rhetorical Criticism: Context, Method, and the Book of Jonah" by Phyllis 
Trible (Fortress, 1994).

As the title implies, it's as much about methodology as it is the book 
of  Jonah, but it's a great companion for a close reading of the Hebrew 
text, as well.

I'm also just now re-reading "Moby Dick" -- and realizing why it was so 
boring during my biblically illiterate high school days!   :-)
