9780140186000: Summing Up (Penguin 20th Century Classic)

Autobiographical without being an autobiography, confessional without disclosing his private self, The Summing Up, written when Maugham was sixty-four, is an inimitable expression of a personal credo. It is not only a classic avowal of a professional author's ideas about style, literarture, art, drama and philosophy, but also an illuminating insight into this great writer's craft.

"One of the finest short-story stylists Britain has ever produced" (Economist)

"One of the most cosmopolitan English writers" (Washington Post)

Book Description:

A rare glimpse into the life and mind of one of the most enigmatic of 20th century authors
