About the Author

Joseph Conrad (1857-1924) grew up amid political unrest in Russian-occupied Poland. After twenty years at sea with the French and British merchant navies, he settled in England in 1894. Over the next three decades he revolutionized the English novel with books such as Typhoon, Nostromo, The Secret Agent, and especially Heart of Darkness, his best-known and most influential work.

An interesting selection of stories. Some are more 'chatty' than others such as Il Conde and the Informer but that does not lessen the descriptive power of Outpost of Progress, Karain the climax of The Secret Sharer
