Overview

Penguin inaugurates a series of revised editions of Conrad’s finest works, with new introductions

In a corrupt London underworld of criminals, terrorists, and fanatics, Mr. Verloc is assigned to plant a bomb. The tragic repercussions for his family show how Conrad’s ironic voice is concerned not with politics but with the terrible fates of ordinary people.
