Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'It is important that Norman Sherry's admirable and self-effacing research should not be put on one side as a curious bit of detective work. At the very least it is a unique and indispensable contribution to Conrad biography (there are some fine photographs). But it is more. Indirectly it is major testimony to the greatness and profundity of Conrad's imagination.' Tony Tanner, The Spectator

'... the most persistent and exhaustive literary detective work on Conrad ever undertaken. Rarely can there have been a more revealing study of what a great writer can do with his material. For anyone interested in Conrad, [this] book is a must.' The Times

'His work is ... a memorable accomplishment, never likely, in its own special line, to be superseded ...'. Richard Curle, The Guardian
