A bit 'specialised' but extremely interesting

I've long been 'aware' of Joseph Conrad, mostly because of my interest in our nautical past. I wasn't aware of the extent of his mission to try to issue some kind of warning about the way the world was shaping up.

This biography is written very much in the context of very recent events such as the Brexit vote and the election of Donald Trump.

Memorable in every aspect. More than a biography. Greatly informative on the historical context of his time. Very timely reflections on the flux of European relations; seen from 21 century but not veering into punditry.

Very Good

A very good companion to Conrad. Jasanoff has skill in writing; and is able to carry you with her through the trials and tribulations of Conrads life.
