El gran novelista ingles Sumerset Maugham se aparto de sus acostumbradas obras de exploracion psicologica en La Luna y Seis Peniques, donde en la historia del financista Strickland que abandona a su familia para dedicarse a la pintura en Haiti, hizo una biografia novelada de Paul Gauguin, el amigo de Van Gogh y uno de los grandes precursores del arte moderno.

A portrayal of a 19th century gentleman who abandons his profession and family to pursue his art in Paris. This book was inspired by Maugham's admiration for Gauguin. It presents a complex character as he explores artistic and social impulses of that time.

    " Read a review on the garden that highly underrated the book. The plot is hardly interesting, given the times we live in, where a man leaving his wife and family to discover himself is hardly new... but the writing, the writing! The genius of Maugham! "

    " I just love the way W. Somerset Maugham writes: All gentleman-like even about the most debauched subjects. This is a good book for those in career transition or studying midlife change. Paul Guaguin did a honey of an about face in his life. Read it and weep. "
