EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK
Joseph Conrad had already had a long and eventful career as a sailor before turning to writing. This lends an enormous, understated power and authenticity to the telling of the story of a sailor living and working in a world that was in the grip of the great seafaring nations of Europe, whose business activities are symbolically represented by the Company.
