In 1878, Joseph Conrad signed aboard a British freighter and began a 17-year odyssey. MIRROR OF THE SEA is his factual account of this period.
He describes the ocean's moods, her anger and charm, how men deal with her. Conrad had no illusions about the sea or the men who worked its commerce. He saw the ocean as metaphor against which men could measure themselves.
"For MIRROR OF THE SEA we would make bold to predict a very long life. We see it being discovered and re-discovered as the years roll on." (The Times, London)
