Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The modern writer who has influenced me the most.” – George Orwell
Library Journal
Delany isn't the only author Vintage is keeping afloat. Published in 1939, 1937, and 1940, respectively, these novels follow Maugham's popular theme whereby people whose seemingly steady lives become completely and utterly altered. Note also that Up at the Villa was made into a feature film in 2000, which may draw additional readers. Maugham is always a quick and pleasant read. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

Meet the Author

W. Somerset Maugham was born in Paris in 1874. He began to study medicine in London but quit to focus exclusively on writing. In 1926 he bought a house in Cap Ferrat, France, which was to become a meeting place for a number of writers, artists and politicians. He died in 1965.

    Good story, nothing else

    This is a great read if that's all you are looking for. There are no deep meanings, or reflective insight to be found. Charley's 'realization' is left to the reader and that give it a modicum of mastery, but look elsewhere for intellectual stimulation.

    Wonderful read, fascinating book

    Great book. Good characters. Expertly written. Strong narrative style, typical of Maugham's best work. From the gentle but scathing desciption of the protagonist's parents and Simon, to the portrait of inter-war Paris and the interactions between Charley and Lydia, this book is a good read that stays with you for years after you've read it. In a good way.

    Christmas Holiday not a Vacation

    This book is not haunting, erotic or deeply affecting. This novel is trying to tell you something, but lacks a tongue. It is a coming of age tale about a young man named Charley who goes gallavanting across Paris. Then his fascist friend Simon introduces him to a young whore named Lydia, she alters Charley's perception about life. Beyond this nothing else can be gained.
