Book Review: Joseph Conrad (author), Matt Kish (illustrator), Heart of Darkness

Having read a bunch of Conrad’s shorter stories but only ever parts of his dark classic I decided to when this illustrated edition was released after seeing an excerpt in Tin House Magazine and am glad I did. Kish’s vision of the horror (the horror) contained within Conrad’s tale within a tale is a hellaciously beautiful world I had a hard time leaving but couldn’t wait to get out of. Highly recommended.
