An Outcast of the Islands
by Joseph Conrad
Publisher: eBooks@Adelaide 2010
Conrad's second novel is a tale of intrigue in an eastern setting. Peter Willems, a clerk in Macassar, granted a "second chance" at a remote river trading post, falls ever more hopelessly into traps set by himself and others. A parable of human frailty, with love and death the major players, this is a story of a man unable to understand others and fated never to possess his own soul.
