Read full description of the books:
Mackintosh, assistente dell'amministratore dell'isola di Talua, è il vice leale di un insopportabile superiore o un subordinato rancoroso che trama vendetta?
E da cosa nasce l'odio di Mr Walburton per il suo aiutante? Due tragedie, due racconti speculari di caratteri inconciliabili, passioni estenuanti, lati oscuri. Di contrasti esasperati dalla vicinanza forzata, sullo sfondo degli avamposti sperduti di un impero ormai prossimo alla fine.

Read information about the authorWilliam Somerset Maugham was born in Paris in 1874. He spoke French even before he spoke a word of English, a fact to which some critics attribute the purity of his style.
His parents died early and, after an unhappy boyhood, which he recorded poignantly in Of Human Bondage, Maugham became a qualified physician. But writing was his true vocation. For ten years before his first success, he almost literally starved while pouring out novels and plays.
Maugham wrote at a time when experimental modernist literature such as that of William Faulkner, Thomas Mann, James Joyce and Virginia Woolf was gaining increasing popularity and winning critical acclaim. In this context, his plain prose style was criticized as 'such a tissue of clichés' that one's wonder is finally aroused at the writer's ability to assemble so many and at his unfailing inability to put anything in an individual way.
During World War I, Maugham worked for the British Secret Service . He travelled all over the world, and made many visits to America. After World War II, Maugham made his home in south of France and continued to move between England and Nice till his death in 1965.
