Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 014018600X, Paperback)Impelled by the desire to recapitulate and amplify those 'subjects that have chiefly interested me during the course of my life', Somerset Maugham wrote The Summing Up when he was sixty-four.Autobiographical without being an autobiography, confessional without disclosing the private self, The Summing UP is one of the most highly regarded expressions of a personal credo. It is not only a classic avowal of a professional author's ideas about style, literature, art, drama and philosophy, but also an illuminating insight into this great writer's craft.
