Description

From his many years on the high seas as a mariner, mate, and captain, Joseph Conrad created unique works, including Heart of Darkness, that have left an indelible mark on world literature. First published in 1899, his haunting novel Lord Jim is both a riveting sea adventure and a fascinating portrait of a unique outcast from civilization. One long evening, over cigars and brandy, the seasoned sea captain, Marlow, recalls the life of a handsome young first mate who loses his ship and his honor, but becomes a god. As his friends listen and question, the powerful and eloquent story of Lord Jim unfolds. Joseph Conrad's novels are timeless. The images he creates in Lord Jim, of man's struggle to maintain a balance between morality and human weakness, have been echoed in countless other novels and major motion pictures. Narrator Steven Crossley provides the perfect voice to convey both the worldly-wise Marlow and the brilliant but deeply flawed Jim.

Professional reviews

"Gifted narrator Steven Crossley uses his most pleasing and authoritative tone as he creates the seascape of the brilliant and heroic Jim. CrossleyÕs performance takes on a dramatic tone and adopts an energetic pace that matches this classic tale of adventure on the high seas. CrossleyÕs talent shines brightest when portraying the relationship between Marlow and Jim, creating a dynamic that is both entertaining and enlightening. Listeners will sign on early and stay on board through the extraordinary climax. R.O. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
