"A transgression, a crime, entering a man's existence, eats it up like a malignant growth, consumes it like a fever. Nostromo had lost his peace; the genuineness of all his qualities was destroyed." "Nostromo" is a novel of passion, identity and politics. In the unstable Latin American republic of Costaguana where yet another dictator has seized power, trusted foreman Nostromo finds his integrity and self-worth bitterly tested by the treasure of the San Tome silver mines he must save. Poetic, ironic and searching, exploring man's vulnerability and corruptibility, social destiny and self-delusion, "Nostromo" embroils us in a world of conflict.
