I had highlighted every occurrence of a word related to light or dark in the entire novella. And I had important sticky note tabs for various characters and themes. And it was the edition that included Chinua Achebe’s essay calling Conrad “a thoroughgoing racist” amongst other critical takes.
But she returned it with her other books to the library. And that’s why I don’t trust people with my books anymore.
"In other words, it was a day like any other."
