Vintage Paperback: W. Somerset Maugham’s ‘The Gentleman in the Parlour’

Gentleman-in-Parlour

[Check out “The Gentleman in the Parlour at Amazon]

First published in 1935 it is the account of a journey the author took form Rangoon to Haiphong.Whether by river to Mandalay, on horse through the mountains and forests of the Shan States to Bangkok, or onwards by sea, Maugham’s muse is in the spirit of Hazlitt, who wrote: ‘It is great to shake off the trammels of the world and public opinion…and become the creature of the moment and to be known by no other title than ‘The Gentleman in the Parlour‘.’

“There enough raw material to sate his imagination and the journey itself takes on the contours of a story worth recording.
