A book for those interested in Conrad's life and work and/or literary detection convincingly performed. Professor Sherry establishes how well Conrad knew the East and how the original material he garnered there was supplemented from other sources; he also shows what Conrad made of his experiences, thus revealing clearly what the artist's own contribution was.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'It is important that Norman Sherry's admirable and self-effacing research should not be put on one side as a curious bit of detective work. At the very least it is a unique and indispensable contribution to Conrad biography (there are some fine photographs). But it is more. Indirectly it is major testimony to the greatness and profundity of Conrad's imagination.' Tony Tanner, The Spectator
'... the most persistent and exhaustive literary detective work on Conrad ever undertaken. Rarely can there have been a more revealing study of what a great writer can do with his material. For anyone interested in Conrad, [this] book is a must.' The Times
'His work is ... a memorable accomplishment, never likely, in its own special line, to be superseded ...'. Richard Curle, The Guardian
