  • Notes on Life and Lettersby Joseph Conrad

    Start Classics 2014; US$ 1.99

    I don't know whether I ought to offer an apology for this collection which has more to do with life than with letters. Its appeal is made to orderly minds. This, to be frank about it, is a process of tidying up, which, from the nature of things, cannot be regarded as premature. The fact is that I wanted to do it myself because of a feeling that had... more...
