This novel is loosely based on the life of artist Paul Gauguin. Fascinating story narrated superbly by Steven Crossley. A nice read!

It's so refreshing to listen to the English language worked so well. Maugham is a literary marvel and his use of language perfect.This story is I believe loosely modeled on Gaugin's life. It's based on fragments of a life rather than a chronological account of every happening in his life. So there's an element of cat & mouse, some need to guess and weave together and perhaps never enough detail but enough to paint a picture of a life. It all comes together. It's been a while since I was motivated to see the novel through to conclusion so quickly, in this case over 24 hours. The narrator does a v good job without attempting silly accents to convey different characters. First rate.
