An uncompromising and self-destructive young man deserts his wife, family, business, and civilization for his art. Shedding harsh light on an artist's ego, Maugham reveals the lengths to which one man will go to focus on his art. Written in 1919, this unforgettable story is timeless in its appeal.

Cyril Connolly

His excessively rare gift of storytelling...is almost an equal of imagination itself. -- The Sunday Times
