Almayer's Folly

by Joseph Conrad

This is a decidedly powerful story of an uncommon type, and breaks fresh ground in fiction.... All the leading characters in the book--Almayer, his wife, his daughter, and Dain, the daughter's native lover--are well drawn, and the parting between father and daughter has a pathetic naturalness about it, unspoiled by straining after effect. (Conrad's first novel.)
