When Cakes and Ale was first published in 1930 it roused a storm of controversy, since many people imagined they recognised portraits of literary figures now no more. It is the novel for which Maugham wished to be remembered.

    " This was very, very funny, and the unexpectedness of that made me like it even more. Can't wait for The Secret Lives of Somerset Maugham, coming out in May. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Sharon Zink | 2/12/2014

    " This is a story of the narrator's account of his friendship with a woman of loose morals. I enjoy the writing of W. Somerset Maugham, whatever he writes about. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Ingrid Thomson | 2/7/2014

    " I love Somerset Maugham and read this book when I was reading Thomas Hardy, as it was known at the time of publication as a roman a clef on Hardy and the literary scene after WW I. It was that, and the characters are great, but, the ending is really shocking and affected me for weeks. Beware. This is a great read, but be ready for a jolt at the end. "

    " This is a book by a real writer. W.S.Maugham knows HOW to tell a story! This one's well equipped with sideswipes to once wellknown British writer contemporaries of this master of his guild adding some tasty spice to the work. "
