From an orphan with a clubfoot, Philip Carey grows into an impressionable young man with a voracious appetite for adventure and knowledge. Then he falls obsessively in love, embarking on a disastrous relationship that will change his life forever. William Somerset Maugham, CH (January 25, 1874 – December 16, 1965) was an English playwright, novelist, and short story writer. He was one of the most popular authors of his era, and reputedly the highest paid of his profession during the 1930s.

About the Author:

William Somerset Maugham (25 January 1874 – 16 December 1965) was a British playwright, novelist and short story writer. He was among the most popular writers of his era and reputedly the highest paid author during the 1930s. Not wanting to become a lawyer like other men in his family, Maugham eventually trained and qualified as a physician. The initial run of his first novel, Liza of Lambeth (1897), sold out so rapidly that Maugham gave up medicine to write full-time.

Review:

"A work of genius." -- Theodore Dreiser "In Aspects of the Novel, E.M. Forster wrote: "The final test of a novel will be our affection for it, as it is the test of our friends, of anything else that we cannot define." He might have been writing about W. Somerset Maugham's masterpiece, Of Human Bondage." -- Robert McCrum Guardian (2014) "I do not know of any living writer who seems to have his work so much under control." -- Evelyn Waugh "A deeply imagined and powerfully moving novel." New Yorker (2010) "Maugham, who usually cultivated a fastidious detachment, shows in this work a personal commitment that was unusual, sweeping the reader up in his own passionate intensity." -- Selina Hastings

Book Description Everyman, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. After a lonely boyhood, and the painful ordeal of his schooldays, Philip s yearning for adventure takes him to Germany and later Paris where he tries to make his mark as an artist before returning to London to study medicine. Here, a tortured and one-sided love affair with Mildred, a vulgar yet irresistible waitress, changes the course of his life for ever. Commenting later on the novel s autobiographical aspects, Maugham recalled how in writing the book he mingled fact and fiction and found myself free from the pains and unhappy recollections that had tormented me .However, like Dickens s David Copperfield to which it is often compared, Of Human Bondage goes far beyond autobiography, and is Maugham s most ambitious and unsparing novel, revealing the author s undoubted gift for storytelling as he explores the timeless theme of human freedom - freedom to act, to think and to love.
