Nostromo by Joseph Conrad ranked # 47 on The Modern Library's Top 100 Novels list as selected by its Board Members.
Nostromo is a 1904 novel by Polish-born British novelist Joseph Conrad, set in the fictitious South American republic of "Costaguana."
Conrad sets his novel in the mining town of Sulaco, an imaginary port in the occidental region of the imaginary country of Costaguana. This town and its denizens are believed by many to be among Conrad's greatest literary creations.
The book has more fully-developed characters than any other of his novels, but two characters dominate the narrative: Senor Gould, and the eponymous anti-hero, the "incorruptible" Nostromo.
