Reviews

"[Maugham is] a great artist . . . a genius." -Theodore Dreiser

"[Maugham's] excessively rare gift of story-telling . . . is almost the equal of imagination itself." -The Sunday Times (London)

"It is very difficult for a writer of my generation, if he is honest, to pretend indifference to the work of Somerset Maugham. . . . He was always so entirely there." -Gore Vidal

"Maugham remains the consummate craftsman. . . . [His writing is] so compact, so economical, so closely motivated, so skillfully written, that it rivets attention from the first page to last." -Saturday Review of Literature
