“[Maugham’s] excessively rare gift of story-telling . . . is almost the equal of imagination itself.” –The Sunday Times (London)

“Maugham remains the consummate craftsman. . . . [His writing is] so compact, so economical, so closely motivated, so skillfully written, that it rivets attention from the first page to last.” –Saturday Review of Literature --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

The style is a little different from what I'm used to, but is easy to get used to.
It jumps about a little in places but manages to maintain a good chronology.
It get's a little heavy on the philosophy towards the end but as the author points out you don't need to read that chapter, I did and am none the worse for it.
I think it's less about 'Larry's life' than about the author.
Not my usual read but most enjoyable, will read more by this author.
