Same with Joseph Conrad. Guy needs to put the pen down and go make some balloon animals. Fuckin clown.
Don't get me started on Lolita...
I really like Conrad. He's one of my all-time favorite authors.
Lord Jim, Heart of Darkness, Victory, The Shadow Line, An Outpost of Progress, The Secret Sharer, Under Western Eyes ... I enjoyed them all.
Admittedly I found The Secret Agent dull, almost unreadable.
