Why do I love reading Joseph Conrad

Joseph Conrad (source:Wikipedia)

Thinker, stylist, and man of the world in his time, the elder Heyst had begun by coveting all the joys, those of the great and those of the humble, those of the fools and those of the sages. For more than sixty years he had dragged on this painful earth of ours the most weary, the most uneasy soul that civilization had ever fashioned to its ends of disillusion and regret.

  1. Nice you’re back! However, I despise Conrad, and there are few authors about which I would say that. Maybe I’ll get over it someday …

      1. Au contraire, teddy bear. Your readers will wait patiently. Unless you plan to start writing about Conrad full time 🙂
