Somerset Maugham had initially planned to become a doctor, but after the immediate success of his first novel he decided to become a full-time writer, and so went on to write many successful novels and sufficient short-stories to fill several volumes. Although born almost about 150 years ago, his observations of human behaviour are still relevant today. This term we shall be reading some of his most famous ones.
