Nostromo: A Tale of the Seaboard

Nostromo: A Tale of the Seaboard Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

(Book Jacket Status: Not Jacketed)

Conrad's foresight and his ability to pluck the human adventure from complex historical circumstances were such that his greatest novel, Nostromo — though nearly one hundred years old — says as much about today's Latin America as any of the finest recent accounts of that region's turbulent political life. Insistently dramatic in its storytelling, spectacular in its recreation of the subtropical landscape, this picture of an insurrectionary society and the opportunities it provides for moral corruption gleams on every page with its author's dry, undeceived, impeccable intelligence.
