La gente siempre esta en el filo de una navaja, dice un proverbio oriental y en el se baso el ingles Somerset Maugham para una de sus ultimas novelas, en donde los protagonistas son un joven intelectual y una muchacha que solo ansia ser rica. Ese conflicto entre la mente y lo material lleva a una serie de interesantes desarrollos.

Larry Darrell is a young man whose experiences in World War I lead him to question the meaning of his comfortable life. Postponing his engagement to Isabel, he travels first to Europe and then to India, where his studies with a Hindu holy man change his life.
