Publisher Description

One of the most popular writers of Interwar Britain, W. Somerset Maugham earned vast sums as a playwright, novelist and master of the short story. His work is characterised by a clear unadorned style, cosmopolitan settings and a perceptive understanding of human nature. The novel ‘Of Human Bondage’ (1915) is generally regarded as his masterpiece, offering a semi-autobiographical account of a young medical student’s painful progress toward maturity. For the first time in publishing history, this eBook presents Maugham’s complete fictional works, with numerous illustrations, rare stories, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
