The Summing Up

Arrangement with Doubleday, Doran, Incorporated, 1938 - Authors - 310 pages
This book represents Maugham's life and philosophy in his own words. It is autobiographical in nature, though most of the work is concerned with Maugham's unique and fascinating opinions on the theatre, writing, metaphysics and the interesting people he encountered in his long and successful career.
