This is the disclaiming first chapter of this sea tale par excellence which evolved from a passage i n The Moon and Sixpence that Maugham had written twelve years before.

Sheltering from a storm at the island of Kanda, the trio are befriended by the good-natured Erik Christessen. But once they encounter the cool and beautiful Louise their story beco mes one of love, jealousy, murder and suicide.


Portrait

William Somerset Maugham was born in 1874 and lived in Paris until he was ten. He was educated at King's School, Canterbury, and at Heidelberg University. He spent some time at St. Thomas' Hospital with the idea of practising medicine, but the success of his first novel, Liza of Lambeth, published in 1897, won him over to literature. Of Human Bondage, the first of his masterpieces, came out in 1915, and with the publication in 1919 of The Moon and Sixpence his reputation as a novelist was established. At the same time his fame as a successful playwright and writer was being consolidated with acclaimed productions of various plays and the publication of several short story collections. His other works include travel books, essays, criticism and the autobiographical The Summing Up and A Writer's Notebook. In 1927 Somerset Maugham settled in the South of France and lived there until his death in 1965.

Pressestimmen

"Maugham had a narrow but profound gift for domesticating the strange and making the exotic appear reassuringly familiar" -- Nicholas Shakespeare Daily Telegraph "The fictional summa of everything Maugham had seen and learned about the East" Washington Post "The modern writer who has influenced me the most" -- George Orwell "He puts most 21st-century novelists to shame" -- Rachel Cooke Observer
