The stories comprise chapters one through eight of volume four of his "Läsning för barn" (Reading for Children). They are generally seen as highly influenced by the author's own childhood memories.

Librivox: Typhoon by Conrad, Joseph show

Librivox: Typhoon by Conrad, JosephJoin Now to Follow

Typhoon is a short novel by Joseph Conrad, begun in 1899 and published in Pall Mall Magazine in 1902. It is a classic sea yarn that describes how Captain Macwhirr sails the Siamese steamer Nan-Shan into a typhoon. Other characters include the young Jukes and Solomon, the head engineer. The novel classically evokes the sea-faring life at the turn of the century. While Macwhirr is emotionally estranged from his family and crew, and though he refuses to consider an alternate course to skirt the typhoon, his indomitable will in the face of a superior natural force elicits grudging admiration.
