9780099286882: The Narrow Corner (Vintage Classics)

On his way home from a remote Pacific island, Dr Saunders travels with two strangers: the treacherous Captain Nichols, and Fred, a handsome Australian with a shadowy past. Driven to shelter from a storm on the island of Kanda, the trio meet good-natured Erik Christessen and his fiancée, the cool and beautiful Louise. A tense, exotic tale of love, jealousy, murder and suicide, which evolved from a passage in Maugham's earlier masterpiece, The Moon and Sixpence.

"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)
