Publisher's Description

As revolution rocks the nation of Costaguana, the seemingly incorruptible Nostromo is entrusted with the safekeeping and international sale of silver from his employer's mine. But when the boat transporting Nostromo and his cargo is sunk by rebels, Nostromo's decision to hide the silver on a deserted island comes to haunt him for the remainder of his life.

Written at the height of author Joseph Conrad's career, Nostromo explores the impact of colonialism, rebellion, and corruption on an honourable man.

Author Bio

Polish author Joseph Conrad is considered to be one of the greatest English-language novelists, a remarkable achievement considering English was not his first language. Conrad's literary works often featured a nautical setting, reflecting the influences of his early career in the Merchant Navy, and his depictions of the struggles of the human spirit in a cold, indifferent world are best exemplified in such seminal works as Heart of Darkness, Lord JimM, The Secret Agent, Nostromo, and Typhoon. Regarded as a forerunner of modernist literature, Conrad's writing style and characters have influenced such distinguished writers as F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, William S. Burroughs, Hunter S. Thompson, and George Orwell, among many others. Many of Conrad's novels have been adapted for film, most notably Heart of Darkness, which served as the inspiration and foundation for Francis Ford Coppola's 1979 film Apocalypse Now.
