Published by Arcade Publishing. The Secret Lives of Somerset Maugham, A Biography, by Selina Hastings.
From the cover blurb:
"He was a brilliant teller of tales, one of the most widely read authors of the twentieth century, and at one time the most famous writer in the world, yet W. Somerset Maugham's own true story has never been fully told. At last, the truth is revealed in a landmark biography by the award-winning writer Selina Hastings. Granted unprecedented access to Maugham's personal correspondence and to newly uncovered interviews with his only child, Hastings portrays the secret loves, betrayals, integrity, and passion that inspired Maugham to create such classics as The Razor's Edge and Of Human Bondage. From the West End to Broadway, from China to the South Pacific, Maugham's restless and remarkably productive life is thrillingly recounted."
Good condition paperback. Moderate wear and creasing to the covers. Internally the book is clean and clear, save for a small stain on the rear free endpaper and inside back cover.
