Polish-born writer Joseph Conrad’s novels and short stories usually involve grizzled sailors past their prime battling their inner demons. The story “Youth: A Narrative” represents something of a departure from the formula that made Conrad famous. It’s a semi-autobiographical tale that features Marlow, the same character that stood in for the author in Heart of Darkness recounting an early sea voyage that went terribly awry.
