Classics • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1944

This is a masterful adaptation of Maugham’s tale of one man’s search for enlightenment. His quest weaves through European and American society from WWI through the Great Depression, allowing Maugham to introduce characters from every niche of French, American, and English society. It’s a pleasure to hear Michael Page switch accents to bring each of them to life. His voice balances perfectly Maugham’s strong narrative with the individualized syntax and slang that distinguishes them. Page also manages one of the toughest tasks of all, delivering Maugham’s reflections on the nature of the human spirit so that both the worldly cynicism and the spiritual yearning come through.
