About this title

Synopsis:

Williie: The Life Of W. Somerset Maugham, by Calder, Robert

From Publishers Weekly:

Differing from Ted Morgan's antipathetic Maugham (1980), this thorough, scholarly biography--written, unlike earlier books, with the cooperation of Maugham's secretary Alan Searle--sympathetically explores Maugham's homosexuality and its effect on his writing. Emphasizing the prolific writer's "sensitivity, wit, loyalty and numerous kindnesses," Calder, a professor of English at the University of Saskatchewan, explores Maugham's relationships with his wife Syrie and male companions. The biographer skillfully relates the life of "a man without roots," who was "fundamentally itinerant and detached," to his work as novelist, playwright and short story writer. The later chapters, in which the "grand old man" was burdened by his memories, lack the interest of the earlier ones. Photos.
