In which I am sincere

Ebook update. Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad – English wasn’t Conrad’s first language, more like fifth or sixth, but he took to it like a chicken to gumbo. This is a novella, less than 40K words, but there’s so much going on here that I can’t synopsize it without commiting a mortal sin against Western literature.
