One of the ??most challenging books Somerset Maughan has given us. Those who look to him for a colorful, romantic story will find this slow-paced at the start; but in the final analysis even they will find that he has told a good story - more than one, in fact, and that he has given ?? something else as well. For in Larry D??ornell he has drawn a character symbolic or ma??ny we shall meet in the years ahead - a youth who has lost touch with the ??ing?? that had ??ttered before the war (this time the first World War) and who is seeking knowledge and faith. Larry was engaged to a girl he had always known, Isabel Bradley; but Larcy's ??unworldliness and reluctance to conform result in a broken engage??t??, and she ??rries as Maugham tells her ten years inter "for a square diamond and a mi??k co??t. And Larry goes on with his search, through study, through travel, finally to find at least a glimmer of light in two years spent in the ??ashram?? of an Indian ?? story - Larry's story - and the story of the tragic worlding, Elliot?? Templeton, Isabel's bachelor uncle, are threads that most and part and most again in a pattern skillfully woven by Maugham, who is father confessor to each ??one in ter??m. The book has some of Maughan's best writing, some of his finest ??characterization....This appeared in Red Book last Spring; it is the ?? selection of the Literary Guild. (Kirkus Reviews)
