Joseph Conrad - 11th Jun 2018

Joseph Conrad is famous for several reasons. He is considered one of the greatest novelists writing in English and is author of many classics such as Heart of Darkness, Nostromo, and Lord Jim, to name only a few.

Secondly, although he was actually from Poland and Polish was his first language, he became a UK citizen and wrote really beautiful prose in English, his second language. There are not many who could do that.

But thirdly, and definitely my favourite, he apparently didn't like to read reviews of his work. What he did was measure the review with a ruler and the longer the review, the happier he was with it. Seems like a very sensible strategy to me.
