Publisher's Summary

When Cakes and Ale was first published in 1930 it roused a storm of controversy, since many people imagined they recognised portraits of literary figures now no more. It is the novel for which Maugham wished to be remembered.

A classic worth reading

I enjoyed this insight into a society so surreal. Although the novel took a while to get into, the narration is delightful and entertaining.

I consider Maugham to be under appreciated. His prose is lovely, and this story is witty and poignant, with ineresting characters. The narration is sublime. RIP James Saxon.
