Delphi Collected Works of W. Somerset Maugham William Somerset Maugham read online review & book 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. This comprehensive eBook presents Maugham’s collected works, featuring all the novels in the US public domain, with numerous illustrations, rare stories, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
