William Somerset Maugham (1874–1965) Maugham was a British novelist and dramatist whose best-known works are Of Human Bondage and The Razor’s Edge. Maugham wrote with wit and irony, frequently expressing a cynical view of life. Many of his plays have become classics of the modern theater, and several of his short stories have been made into films. Karsh characterized Maugham as a “polished, elegant, and sympathetic listener, with an immense cunning in penetrating another man’s inner-most thoughts.”
