Set in the fictional South American country of Costaguana, Nostromo explores the volatile politics and crippling greed surrounding the San Tomé silver mine. The story of power, love, revolutions, loyalty, and reward is told with richly evocative descriptions and brilliantly realized characters. But Nostromo is more than an adventure story; it is also a profoundly dark moral fable. Its language is as compellingly resonant as the sea itself with characters that are absorbing and complex. It was Conrad’s masterwork, a forerunner of modernism, and one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“British narrator Nigel Anthony faces…the linguistic variety among the characters: the titular hero is an Italian, one of the principal families in the story is English, and the setting of the novel is a fictional South American country where the native tongue is Spanish. Anthony affects accents for each of these nationalities, and he’s remarkably convincing, switching between them with ease. Conrad was not known for his vivid characterizations, but Anthony gives this novel’s cast a new dimension with his voicings.” AudioFile

Joseph Conrad (Józef Teodor Konrad Nalecz Korzeniowski) (1857–1924) was born in Ukraine. Raised by an uncle after the death of his parents, he educated himself by reading widely in Polish and French. At age twenty-one he began a long career sailing the seas on French merchant vessels, after which he went to London and began writing, using the romance and adventure of his own life for his incomparable sea novels.
