Author Info
W. Somerset Maugham
William Somerset Maugham received a medical degree from Heidelberg University, after which he practiced medicine. However, his first novel, "Liza of Lambeth" (1897), was such a success that it enabled him to give it up and write full time. He is the author of several well-known novels, plays, and short stories, and died in 1965 at the age of 92.
"Maugham tells his tale of the weird and horrible with a simple sincerity and a constant matching of unhallowed practices with the clean, sweet things of common life that make its effect uncommonly impressive."
