In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

66 Mr. Corde 11's book, happily, has a good checklist of Maugham's works and a useful bibliography of books about Maugham. This study, while it does not (perhaps cannot) give Maugham's work the kind of critical attention that has been given to Conrad's, Joyce's, or James', is a reminder that a writer deserving serious attention does not have to be a "puzzle-maker." We are reminded that lucidity, even simplicity, can also be an aspect of artistic excellence. It is above all an excellent historical record of Maugham's life, the publication of his work, his critical reception, the sources for some of his works, and his attitudes toward subjects he treats in his work. — H.
