About this title

Synopsis:

Gialiano, brother of the Order of St. Francis of A ssisi,.,knr)wa in his worldly life as Filippo Brandolini, of which family I, Giulo Brandolini, am the last descendant. On the death of Fra Giuliano, the manuscript was given to his nephew, Leonello, on whom the estates devolved, and has since been handed down from father to son, as the relic of a member of the family whose piety and good works still shed lustre on the name of Brandolini. It is, perhaps, necessary to explain how the resolution to give these memoirs to the world has eventually been arrived at. For my part, I should have allowed them to remain among the other papers of the family; but my wife wished otherwise.

About the Author:

William Somerset Maugham was an English author, playwright, and doctor best known for the semi-autobiographical novel Of Human Bondage. Orphaned at a young age, Maugham was raised, unhappily, by his uncle, who urged him into a medical career despite his talent and interest in writing. Maugham gave up his career in medicine after his first novel, Liza of Lambeth, sold out its initial printing in several weeks, and next ventured into playwriting with Lady Frederick, which was such a success that by the following year Maugham had four plays running simultaneously. Maugham worked for the British Secret Service during the First World War, travelling all over the world before making his home in the south of France after Second World War and using his experiences as inspiration for new stories. Before his death in 1965, Maugham published many more successful novels including The Letter and The Razor s Edge, both of which were adapted into feature films. Maugham has been remembered as one of the most influential and successful writers of his era, and is believed to have been the highest paid author of the 1930s.
