Reviews

  • A superb storyteller - one of the very best in our language

    Daily Mail
  • The modern writer who has influenced me most

    George Orwell
  • Maugham has given infinite pleasure and left us a splendour of writing which will remain for as long as the written English word is permitted to exist

    Daily Telegraph
  • This semi-autobiographical novel, set at the end of the 19th century, gripped me from the start with its tale of the life of Philip Carey. Its depiction of how a man can become enslaved by an unsuitable love is unsparing

    Christopher Simon Sykes, The Week
