ABOUT THIS BOOK

Typhoon: A Siamese-flagged steamer sails into a typhoon—the worst calamity at
sea. Captain Macwhirr’s controversial decision to steer through it rather than turn
around makes for an epic clash against the forces of Nature. With the ship’s crew
fearing the worst as it enters the tempest, the captain’s steely resolve is put to acid
test.
The Shadow-Line: This semi-autobiographical tale of Joseph Conrad’s maritime
experience, peppered with mystery and morbidity, is also an exploration of the
obscure shadow region where carefree youth transforms into responsible maturity
