My favorite author writing about my favorite location? Yes, please!

I love Conrad’s narrators, they are always obscure, usually unreliable, and are always in possession of the posterity of the main character. It’s as if his narrators are trying to defend the hero before humanity? truth? God? The main characters never seem able to speak for themselves, are oddly mute and are at the mercy of other’s observations.
