9780140186000: The Summing Up (Penguin 20th Century Classic)

THE SUMMING UP represents Maugham's life and philosophy in his own words. It is autobiographical in nature, though most of the work is concerned with Maugham's unique and fascinating opinions on the theatre, writing, metaphysics and the interesting people he encountered in his long and successful career. His style is very conversational and you feel yourself settling into an intellectual odyssey led by a man who lived life to its fullest. Sixty years after THE SUMMING UP was published, Maugham's controversial insights and opinions continue to stimulate conversation and debate. This is one of the most entertaining, self-revealing pieces of all time.

From the Inside Flap:

Autobiographical and confessional, and yet not, this is one of the most highly regarded expressions of a personal credo ? both a classic avowal of an author?s ideas and his craft.
