In Joseph Conrad: A Biography, acclaimed writer Jeffrey Meyers presents the definitive account of the life of Joseph Conrad (1857-1924), author of Heart of Darkness, Lord Jim, Nostromo, and many other landmarks in modern literature. Meyers' biography, published for the first time in paperback by Cooper Square Press, is the first biography of the author in many years. Joseph Conrad brings to light new information about Conrad's life and its impact on his fiction: new models emerge for his characters, including Heart of Darkness' Kurtz, and Meyers also examines in great detail Conrad's relationship with the wild and beautiful American journalist Jane Anderson.

Review:

Shrewdly and sensitively written, and clearly inspired by a great admiration for its subject.--Joyce Carol Oates "The New York Times "

Meyers has looked hard at the raw materials of Conrad's life and has made the right connections. The resulting portrait is stunning and compelling.--Jay Parini, author of The Last Station "Los Angeles Times "

Extensive research, both anecdotal and archival, has resulted in a wealth of new information on Conrad's seafaring career, his marriage, his friendship with Ford Maddox Ford--even on the real-life model for Kurtz. Meyers always has an eye to how life experience colors the fiction. This is highly recommended.--Library Journal
