Abstract:

The Two Worlds of Somerset Maugham presents for the first time anywhere, an intimate, in depth portrait of the famous British author, now in his nineties. Maugham's fabulous life has been divided into two utterly divergent spheres: the lush, pagan beauty of the South Pacific and the old world sophistication and opulence of Villa Mauresque at Cap Ferrat on the French Riviera. Here is the true story of Maugham as bon vivant, a literary giant in his time, and a familiar voyager to faraway, exotic countries in search of material. - Jacket flap.
