Reviews
A well-written and detailed book for anyone who is a lover of Joseph Conrad's novels and stories. The work is an absorbing account of Jasanoff's travels in the footsteps of 'the Master', but she also provides a detailed background of the history and importance of the places: and Conrad's experiences there. Jasanoff also points up where Conrad changes both events, situations and localities to better illustrate his plots. Conrad's works reveal more each time they are reread, and this study adds new depths and emphases.
