Only 3 left in stock (more on the way). Only 2 left in stock (more on the way). As Conrad points out in his foreword to the novel, Nostromo is loosely based on an anecdote he heard as a young man, while working in the Gulf of Mexico. Conrad built the novel around the story of a man who, taking advantage of a local revolution, managed to escape with a lighter (a flat-bottomed barge) loaded with silver.

Conrad’s story is set in the fictional Costaguana, a South American republic with a troubled history of tyranny and revolution.
Joseph Conrad had visited various parts of the world himself – he was a naval man – by the time he came to write Nostromo in 1904. However, for the portrait of a fictional South American state, Costaguana, he relied on several printed sources as well as the material provided to him by his friend, Cunningham Graham.
