William Somerset Maugham was born in 1874 and educated at the King’s School, Canterbury and Heidelberg University. He spent some time at St Thomas’s Hospital as a medical student but was attracted from medicine to letters by the success of his first novel, Liza of Lambeth (1897), in which he drew on what he had seen in the district served by his hospital. Each of these stories can stand on its own. Maugham himself wrote that such a compactness of technique, character and incident may seem disconcerting in a world where at least one loose end is normally left behind; but the compactness is part of the method used by such short story writers as Maugham.

Having never read any of Maugham, this was an excellent introduction, covering a span of years.

Somerset Maugham is one of the greatest writers ever ... He was so ahead of his time especally when he wrote about racism in the East,, very subtly of course.... he was a philosopher of sorts and a great story teller.
