A new pocket edition of this Conradian tale of maddening desire, from the master of the novella
On a sweltering ocean-liner travelling from India to Europe a passenger tells his story: the tale of a doctor in the Dutch East Indies torn between his duty and the pull of his emotions; a tale of power and desire, pride and shame and a headlong flight into folly.
This is one the most intense and incisive of the novellas which brought Stefan Zweig to worldwide fame.
