Charles Strickland, a conventional stockbroker, abandons his wife and children for Paris and Tahiti, to live his life as a painter. Whilst his betrayal of family, duty and honour gives him the freedom to achieve greatness, his decision leads to an obsession which carries severe implications. Inspired by the life of Paul Gauguin, The Moon and Sixpence is at once a satiric caricature of Edwardian conventions and a vivid portrayal of the mentality of a genius.

Review:

"I picked it up and couldn't put it down." (Alexander McCall Smith Mail on Sunday)

"Magnificent" (Express)

"From an era that produced George Bernard Shaw, H.G. Wells and John Galsworthy, Maugham is the great survivor" (Economist)

"If anyone deserves resuscitation, he does... As a teenager, I read and reread my sister's long shelf of Maughams. What I enjoyed was their atmosphere: the brooding, sensual, sinister mood of exotic locations, where his characters seemed always on the verge of mania and where no-one behaved nearly so well as they were expected to" (Rosemary Goring Herald)

Book Description:

Stunningly rejacketed as part of a major reinvigoration of this neglected 20th century master
