An Outcast of the Islands


by
Joseph Conrad

 

"His meditation which resembled slow drifting into suicide was interrupted by Lingard, who, with a loud "I've got you at last!" dropped his hand heavily on Willems' shoulder. This time it was the old seaman himself going out of his way to pick up the uninteresting waif--all that there was left of that sudden and sordid shipwreck."

Published in 1896


A colonial underling struggles with his own decisions on a river outpost in the Far East.
