Nostromo: A Tale of the Seaboard is a novel of great political and psychological importance in modern literature. Set in the fictional South American nation of Costaguana – a land wracked by war and revolution – Conrad paints a mesmerizing portrait of man’s vulnerability to greed and corruption. Through a unique narrative style and vivid characterization, Conrad delves into an account of human frailty with an ironic twist; it is a story without heroes.

One of Conrad's best novels.
Lots of mangled and missing text, throughout the book, but especially in the last 20-30 pages.
A wonderful novel set in an imaginary place in South America. I really loved it!
