The Rescue - A Romance of the Shallows - Joseph Conrad

1920 - J. M. Dent & Sons Ltd., London & Toronto - First Published English Edition [See Notes]
One of the last of Conrad’s novels to be published before his death four years later. Based around the coast of the Malay peninsular, the plot follows the mislaid plans of protagonist Captain Tom Lingard, who, on his way to help a native friend regain his land, falls in love with a married woman whose yacht he saves from floundering.

The Rescue concluded what is sometimes referred to as The Lingard Trilogy, a group of novels based on Conrad's experience as mate on the steamer, Vidar. Although it is the last of the three novels to be published, after Almayer's Folly (1895) and An Outcast of the Islands (1896), the events related in the novel precede those, as it was begun in the 1890s but set aside by Conrad to write The Nigger of the Narcissus.
