The Secret Sharer
Joseph Conrad

About the Book

The Secret Sharer draws on actual events and people that Conrad met or heard about during his many far-flung travels. In portraying men whose incredible journeys on land and at sea are also symbolic voyages into their own mysterious depths, these two masterful works give credence to Conrad's acclaim as a major psychological writer.

About the Edition

The Secret Sharer contains many of Conrad's favorite motifs. A young Captain is assigned to a ship near Siam, but surrounded by an unfamiliar crew he questions his own authority and ability. One night he rescues a naked man clinging to the side of the ship and stows him secretly in his cabin. The man then relates his tale of murder and escape from a nearby ship.
