Meet the Author

Joseph Conrad (3 December 1857 - 3 August 1924) was a Polish author who wrote in English after settling in England. He was granted British nationality in 1886, but always considered himself a Pole. Conrad is regarded as one of the greatest novelists in English, though he did not speak the language fluently until he was in his twenties (and always with a marked accent). He wrote stories and novels, often with a nautical setting, that depict trials of the human spirit in the midst of an indifferent universe. He was a master prose stylist who brought a distinctly non-English tragic sensibility into English literature.

Tons of typos (especially where the text is in French), missing words, even sections where entire paragraphs are repeated over and over, only to pick up again pages later, leaving out important parts of the story. Try finding another copy, because the stories are well-worth reading---just not in this format.

One of my favorite books of short stories. Conrad is a master storyteller.
