The story of a mechanic on a Malay cattle ranch who was living happily in Paris until one night he got drunk and shouted anarchist slogans. His life spun downward out of control until he ended up in a pitiful state.
Kind of a mediocre story for Conrad, beautifully written, paced, and characterized, but almost trivial in subject matter.
