Publisher Description

W. Somerset Maugham is one of the greatest short story writers in English literature. His complex characters and fascinating themes haunt people long after they are finished with reading his works.

Maugham's stories mostly deal with lives of Western, mostly British, colonists in the Pacific Islands and Asia. They typically express the emotional toll the colonists bear by their isolation. Rain and Outstation are considered especially notable.
