Of Human Bondage Cover Image

About the Author: W. Somerset Maugham

William Somerset Maugham was born in Paris in 1874. He spoke French even before he spoke a word of English, a fact to which some critics attribute the purity of his style.

His parents died early and, after an unhappy boyhood, which he recorded poignantly in Of Human Bondage, Maugham became a qualified physician. But writing was his true vocation. For ten years before his first success, he almost literally starved while pouring out novels and plays.

During World War I, Maugham worked for the British Secret Service . He travelled all over the world, and made many visits to America. After World War II, Maugham made his home in south of France and continued to move between England and Nice till his death in 1965.

This classic novel tells the story of Philip Carey, an orphan with a club foot who is raised by a religious aunt and uncle. Yearning for adventure, Philip eventually leaves home to pursue a career as an artist in Paris. When he returns to London to study medicine, he meets the alluring but unfeeling Mildred, beginning a doomed love affair that will change the course of his life. "Here is a novel of the utmost importance," wrote Theodore Dreiser. "It is a beacon of light by which the wanderer may be guided. . . . One feels as though one were sitting before a splendid Shiraz of priceless texture and intricate weave, admiring, feeling, responding sensually to its colors and tones." Newly designed and typeset in a modern 6-by-9-inch format by Waking Lion Press.
