Description

Assertive and sensual, Bertha Ley finds herself carries away by a passion for Edward Craddock, a young man she has known since childhood. She sees in marriage to him a chance to escape from the quiet life she leads with her aunt - and to experience true love. But passionate and full of life, she discovers that little in her marriage to the dutiful and sensible Edward meets her expectations. And as passion dies, she finds herself trapped in a loveless, oppressive marriage. Originally rejected by publishers, Mrs. Craddock was first published only on condition that certain "shocking" passages were removed. It was thirty years before the full text could be published.

Author Biography

William Somerset Maugham was born in 1874 and lived in Paris until he was ten. He was educated at King's School, Canterbury, and at Heidelberg University. He spent some time at St. Thomas' Hospital with the idea of practising medicine, but the success of his first novel, Liza of Lambeth, published in 1897, won him over to literature. Of Human Bondage, the first of his masterpieces, came out in 1915, and with the publication in 1919 of The Moon and Sixpence his reputation as a novelist was established. At the same time his fame as a successful playwright and writer was being consolidated with acclaimed productions of various plays and the publication of several short story collections. His other works include travel books, essays, criticism and the autobiographical The Summing Up and A Writer's Notebook. In 1927 Somerset Maugham settled in the South of France and lived there until his death in 1965
