Of all Somerset Maugham's novels this is the most entertaining and arguably his best ever. Rosie is a barmaid with a heart of gold and a skeleton in her closet. Maugham's portrait of her makes his novel fairly glow with witty observations of the contemporary literary scene. Features Willie Ashenden, who resurfaces in Maugham's Ashenden.

    " Not my favorite of his works. "

    " Really hard for me to get into- first couple chapters were a snoozer. However, I kept pushing and soon found myself addicted to the story. Not a bad read. "

    " 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. "
