LORD JIM, by Joseph Conrad
Conrad's masterpiece, to me, is one of the great manuals of seamanship and of classic trials of one’s self. It’s the foremost yarn of a tragic encounter (with the flaws of but one of us) before the indifference of the sea as well as the iniquity of a handful of its people. Jim pouring out his torrent of pain to Marlow on the Aden verandah is on plane by itself as one of the finest passages in all of Conrad.
