THREE SEA STORIES

JOSEPH CONRAD    Book Number: 27116    Product format: Paperback

As these three specially commissioned stories amply demonstrate, Conrad is our greatest maritime writer. In Typhoon, Conrad's funniest story, Captain MacWhirr blunders into a hurricane that reveals the sea's treachery, violence and terror. Falk is desperate to get married, but first he must tell of his terrible experiences as sole survivor of a stricken ship that once drifted into the ice-caps of Antarctica. The Shadow-Line is a poignant and beautiful story. Written during the First World War and based on Conrad's fond evocation of his own first-command, it expresses his solidarity with all who were obliged to cross in early youth the shadow-line of their war-torn generation. 304pp. Paperback.
