"Maugham was one of the great masters of clever narrative and construction" -- Allan Massie Sunday Herald "A formidable talent, a formidable sum of talents" Spectator "It is very difficult for a writer of my generation, if he is honest, to pretend indifference to the work of Somerset Maugham... He was always so entirely there" -- Gore Vidal
W. Somerset Maugham was born in Paris in 1874. He began to study medicine in London but quit to focus exclusively on writing. In 1926 he bought a house in Cap Ferrat, France, which was to become a meeting place for a number of writers, artists and politicians. He died in 1965.
