  • Short Stories of William Somerset Maugham, Volume 3

    Story
    (22)

    William Somerset Maugham (1874 - 1965) took his reading material quite seriously. He said, "When I read a book, I seem to read it with my eyes only. But now and then I come across a passage, perhaps only a phrase, which has a meaning for me, and it becomes part of me." Maugham's work has certainly become a part of millions of his fans today. To judge by his short story masterpieces, it was in the tiny crevasses and pinched corners of humanity that Maugham illuminated those elemental qualities that were to fascinate him all his life.

    Erik says: "Great narrator and great book, rare indeed"
    "Charlton Griffin is hard to understand."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Short Stories of William Somerset Maugham, Volume 3 to be better than the print version?

    no


    What did you like best about this story?

    Maughm is a good writer and I appreciate his ironic endings.


    What three words best describe Charlton Griffin’s performance?

    brittle, muffled, heavily accented.


    If you could take any character from Short Stories of William Somerset Maugham, Volume 3 out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    The verger at St. Peters. He was undoubtedly a wise man.
