Although published in 1919, Maugham's study of a man who abandons a comfortable, conventional life to pursue an overwhelming artistic impulse doesn't seem dated. Reincarnated as an audiobook, it will give pleasure to many who wouldn't pick it up in print. Michael Page is well-chosen as the first-person narrator, a writer who moves on the periphery of the artist's life. His tone and pacing are good, his voice pleasant, and his character voices satisfactory. This is an attractive offering though marred by sound quality.
