This was the second novel by Joseph Conrad, and it was inspired by his experience as mate of a steamer, the Vidar. The novel tells the story of Peter Willems, an immoral man who finds refuge in a hidden native village, only to betray his benefactors over his lust for the tribal chief's daughter.

An Outcast of the Islands is the latest volume in the widely praised Cambridge Edition of the Works of Joseph Conrad. Like its predecessors in this series, this volume offers scholars an authoritative text, free from the interference of early typists, compositors and editors, and comprehensive textual and explanatory notes.From the Publisher:
Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.
