Reviews

  • A work of genius.

    Theodore Dreiser
  • In Aspects of the Novel, E.M. Forster wrote: "The final test of a novel will be our affection for it, as it is the test of our friends, of anything else that we cannot define." He might have been writing about W. Somerset Maugham's masterpiece, Of Human Bondage.

    Robert McCrum, Guardian (2014)
  • I do not know of any living writer who seems to have his work so much under control.

    Evelyn Waugh
  • A deeply imagined and powerfully moving novel.

    New Yorker (2010)
  • Maugham, who usually cultivated a fastidious detachment, shows in this work a personal commitment that was unusual, sweeping the reader up in his own passionate intensity.
