The Several Lives of Joseph Conrad
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
The author of Nostromo, The Secret Agent and Heart of Darkness remains one of the most significant novelists of the 20th century. This first new biography in more than a decade draws on unpublished sources to chart Conrad's multiple identities, from his birth in Ukraine, life as a sailor out of Marseilles and travels in Africa and the Far East, to his literary career. Authoritative and insightful, the book sheds new light on the sense of otherness that pervades Conrad's work.
