This volume contains two great novels written together by two of the best writters of the 20th century: Ford Madox Fox and Joseph Conrad.
The Inheritors: An Extravagant Story (1901) is a quasi-science fiction novel that looks at society's mental evolution and what is gained and lost in the process. Written before the first World War, its themes of corruption and the effect of the 20th Century on British aristocracy.
Romance, written in 1903, was the second of the colaborations, and one in which their differences started to surface. In fact, there are parts of the novels where the characters seem to talk, in reality, to the other writer, which made this a very interesting reading.
