When a child makes a wish, where does it go? Like a tiny seed carried on the wind, a wish journeys through adversity, takes root, and grows. When the time is right, it blooms and sends its seeds of hope into the world to be shared. A Wish is a Seed is a celebration of the power and potential of hope often hidden in small packages and unexpected places.

The wish takes a breathtaking journey, sailing over water, drifting through canyons, gliding down streets and along roofs, weaving among raindrops. . . . The evocative, slightly surreal illustrations work beautifully with the lyrical story. . . . A lovely way for children to imagine what happens to a wish. — Kirkus

The Secret Agent: The Seeds of Evil

Conrad’s interest in shore life and politics continues, but this time the scene is Britain, London in particular. The Secret Agent is different in other ways too. It is less immediately social than Nostromo. Conrad wrote accurately: ‘It had some importance for me as a new departure in genre and is a sustained effort in ironical treatment of a melodramatic subject.’ 1 In Heart of Darkness, he employed an ironic method through a narrator, Marlow, but the irony of The Secret Agent is of a different quality and is deployed without a narrator and, in a way, acts as a substitute for one. In fact, not only Conrad’s fictional mode but his viewpoint too is ironic. The ’subject’ is usually the stuff of melodrama — the life of a double agent, embassy intrigue, a bomb blast, accidental death, suicide and underground revolutionists. Indeed, A. J. Guerard, invoking Graham Greene, considers The Secret Agent an ‘entertainment’. 2 But it seems to me that, whereas Greene deliberately introduces the quality of ‘entertainment’, Conrad does not do so here. The ‘entertainment’ as such in The Secret Agent is incidental and a by-product of profoundly serious intentions on Conrad’s part.

The fact is you want more scepticism at the very foundation of your work. Scepticism, the tonic of minds, the tonic of life, the agent of truth — the way of art and salvation.

(Conrad, letter to John Galsworthy, 11 November 1901)
