Description: Almayer's Folly (1895) was Conrad's first novel, set in a remote Bornean outpost at the end of the last century. Conrad draws on his own experience to present the strains of life at a cultural crossroads. The Dutch trader, Almayer, is stranded in Sambir, thirty miles up a virtually unknown equatorial river. He lives among of and new cultures; his wife is Sulu (Philippino), behind him live his Arab rivals, across the river is the Malay rajah's campong, inland are the primitive Dyak headhunters, and decisions taken in London and Amsterdam affect every household in the settlement.Expand description
