John Dziadecki
 
The Portable Conrad (Portable Library)
The Portable Conrad (Portable Library)
""His characters are unique and real, and the stories are real world, challenging situations that are unpredictable and yet follow the laws of human nature, and are therefore somewhat more than real.""

Nostromo: A Tale of the Seaboard (Classic, 20th-Century, Penguin)

"1911. "... wonderful proof that genius does not play politics. The novel's other virtues are too numerous to list here. I could read it every year for the rest of my life, and probably will.""
