Review:

"Maugham's best travel book" ( Washington Post)

"One of the most under-rated writers of last century" ( Glasgow Herald)

"Maugham was one of the great masters of clever narrative and construction" (Allan Massie)

"He was a superb storyteller - one of the very best in our language - who wrote with a wordly, sardonic understanding of the human condition." ( Daily Mail)

Another classic travel book from Maugham; fierce and colourful throughout.
