Maugham is superb Dec 29, 2011
This is a compelling work by one of the world's best-known authors. I first read it nearly 50 years ago, shortly after it was published, and I'm reading it again now. Though it is not an autobiography, it's autobiographical in nature and includes many of Maugham's perceptive comments about people, places and ideas. It's well worth your time, is very accessible and belongs on every bookshelf.
