Summary

Told from the viewpoint of a European colonial trader who has moved to a South Sea island, this novella critiques the colonialism and economic imperialism of the 19th century. The story builds from the cold welcome the trader receives upon his arrival at the island to the growing tension between the traders and islanders, resulting in an astonishingly violent ending.

This beautifully packaged series of classic novellas includes the works of masterful writers. Inexpensive and collectible, they are the first single-volume publications of these classic tales, offering a closer look at this underappreciated literary form and providing a fresh take on the world's most celebrated authors.
