I don’t like work... but I like what is in work - the chance to find yourself.

Joseph Conrad

Born Jozef Teodor Konrad Nalecz Korzeniowski in Ukraine of Polish parents in 1857, Conrad served in the British Merchant Service (1878-94), travelling to Africa, Australia, India, Indonesia and the Orient, becoming a British citizen in 1886. Turning to full-time writing in 1894, his years at sea featured heavily in his early works. His novels, such as 'Lord Jim', and his novella 'Heart of Darkness' (on which the film 'Apocalypse Now' was based) have brought him an enduring reputation.
