Praise

“Brilliantly concise and often witty. . . . Stape has pressed into one volume all the basic factual information anyone is likely to want to know about Conrad’s life.”
The Washington Post Book World

“A balanced, detailed, thoroughly researched book that is filled with fresh insights into this rather enigmatic man. . . . Terrific.”
Tucson Citizen

“Stape flushes out many facts we’ve not seen before. He sets various records straight, debunking myths about Conrad.”
The Weekly Standard

"Stape’s desire to strip out the myths and not to add more is to be admired. . . . There [are] wonderful glimpses of [Conrad] through the eyes of his friends."
The Economist

"Stape delivers a usefully compact . . . biography that draws on material not available to his predecessors."
The Seattle Times
