The first and most autobiographical of Maugham's masterpieces. It is the story of Philip Carey, an orphan eager for life, love and adventure. After a few months studying in Heidelberg, and a brief spell in Paris as a would-be artist, he settles in London to train as a doctor where he meets Mildred, the loud but irresistible waitress with whom he plunges into a tortured and masochistic affair.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Synopsis:

A young man struggling for self-realization, Philip Carey becomes caught up in a destructive love affair with a waitress, in the classic novel of sexual obsession, self-discovery, and the complexities of human relationships. Reissue.
