Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Filled with adventure, passion, and intrigue, The Narrow Corner is a classic tale of the sea by one of the twentieth-century's finest writers. Island hoping across the South Pacific, the esteemed Dr. Saunders is offered passage by Captain Nichols and his companion Fred Blake, two men who appear unsavory, yet any means of transportation is hard to resist. The trip turns turbulent, however, when a vicious storm forces them to seek shelter on the remote island of Kanda. There these three men fall under the spell of the sultry and stunningly beautiful Louise, and their story spirals into a wicked tale of love, murder, jealousy, and suicide.

Synopsis:

"The Narrow Corner" is a classic tale of the sea by one of the 20th-century's finest writers. [Maugham's] prose is so compact, so economical, so closely motivated, so skillfully written that it rivets from first to last.--"Saturday Review of Literature."
