Yes, yes, gentle reader. I know that the n-word is yesterday’s news.
In any case, I didn’t want to leave you without mentioning The N-Word of the Narcissus. It is well known that Joseph Conrad lived in a time in which “facebook” was neither noun nor verb. But what is more, he used the n-word!
But not anymore: “WordBridge Publishing has performed a public service in putting Joseph Conrad’s neglected classic into a form accessible to modern readers.” Enjoy: The N-Word of the Narcissus.
Also: Heart of Darkness is one of my favorite books, ever. Conrad rocks my world.
