More About Of Human Bondage by W. Somerset Maugham; Maeve Binchy; Benjamin Demott
 
 
 
Overview
From a tormented orphan with a clubfoot, Philip Carey grows into an impressionable young man with a voracious appetite for adventure and knowledge. His cravings take him to Paris at age eighteen to try his hand at art, then back to London to study medicine. But even so, nothing can sate his nagging hunger for experience. Then he falls obsessively in love, embarking on a disastrous relationship that will change his life forever....

Marked by countless similarities to Maugham's own life, his masterpiece is "not an autobiography," as the author himself once contended, "but an autobiographical novel; fact and fiction are inexorably mingled; the emotions are my own." And although he based Of Human Bondage on what he knew, his is an "excessively rare gift of storytelling...almost the equal of imagination itself."*

With an Introduction by Benjamin De Mott and an Afterword by Maeve Binchy

*The Sunday Times (London)
