W. Somerset Maugham. Attractive Penguin paperback from 1983. Cover design by Birdsall/ Peccinotti.
‘So shocked the Nerw York editor who commissioned it that bit never appeared as the magazine serial it was intended to be. But, in the end, it proved to be one of the most popular books Somerset Maugham ever wrote...’
This is one of High Valley Books suggested Emergency Paperbacks...which come in a protective plastic sleeve (and with one of our homemade bookmarks), to be kept in the handbag or man-purse for those moments when a Book is Needed.
