Somerset Maugham's irony and cool detachment make him an acknowledged master of the short story. The stories collected here are typical of Maugham's wry perception of human weakness and his unique talent for evoking a sense of time and place. They are set in familiar Maugham territory - the South Seas, Europe and America - but they are all concise and compelling dramas played out by unforgettable characters. The collection includes some of Maugham's most famous stories: "The Alien Corn", "Flotsam and Jetsam" and particularly "The Vessel of Wrath", a surprising tale of burgeoning love between a repressed mission lady and a drunken reprobate.

Who better qualified to chronicle the experiences of an author-agent during the First World War than Somerset Maugham, a writer turned spy? His alter-ego is Ashenden, a calm observer with a cool head. From his almost casual recruitment into intelligence at the beginning of hostilities we follow his progress through a series of incidents. There is the fiasco of the Hairless Mexican, a ladies' man and thoroughly inept assassin. And the pathetic tale of Mr. Harrington, the touching and ridiculous American, clumsily feeling his way through the turmoil of the Russian Revolution. Most dreadful of all is the bleak story of the Traitor, whose fate reveals the real horror of the agent's profession.

These thirty short stories show an acknowledged master of the genre at the peak of his power. Most are set in the colonies at a time when the Empire was still assured, in a world in which men and women were caught between their own essentially European values and the richness and ambiguity of their unfamiliar surroundings.

Based on the life of Paul Gauguin, The Moon and Sixpence is W. Somerset Maugham's ode to the powerful forces behind creative genius. Charles Strickland is a staid banker, a man of wealth and priviledge. He is also a man possessed of an inquenchable desire to create art. As Strickland pursues his artistic vision, he leaves London for Paris and Tahiti, and in his quest makes sacrifices that leave the lives of those closest to him in tatters. Through Maugham's sympathetic eye Strickland's tortured and cruel soul becomes a symbol of the blessing and the curse of transcendent artistic genius, and the cost in human lives it sometimes demands.

Amid the gloomy, grimy world of South London in the 1890s - a world where sorrows are drowned in drink or occasionally lighted by a day out in the country - Liza grasps at the chance to escape from the poverty and drudgery of her life. She falls into the open arms of Jim, a married man with children. But Vere Street has its rules and conventions, and by overstepping them Liza must face the tragic consequences.
