Book Details

Title:The Sisters
Conrad, Joseph   
(2 of 4 for author by title)
The Nature of a Crime
Published:   1928
Publisher:The Bookman
Tags:fiction, short story

"The Sisters" is one of the two unfinished stories found among Conrad's papers after his death, the other being "Suspense", published two years ago (1926). He had begun "The Sisters" in 1896, but put it aside, in accordance with his custom of postponing a piece of writing when another presented itself with more urgent appeal, or when need for money demanded his writing something that would bring immediate reward. Conrad turned from "The Sisters" to "The Nigger of the Narcissus", fully intending to finish the first but never doing so. During those years Conrad was closely associated with Ford Madox Ford, his friend and collaborator. Mr. Ford has written for THE BOOKMAN a commentary on "The Sisters" and his recollection of Conrad's account of the problem he had set himself in the story. Mr. Ford's article immediately follows "The Sisters". [Suggest a different description.]
