With an introduction by Nicholas Shakespeare "Cakes and Ale" is both a wickedly satirical novel about contemporary literary poseurs and a skilfully crafted study of freedom.
As he traces the fortunes of Edward Driffield and his extraordinary wife Rosie, one of the most delightful heroines of twentieth-century literature, Maugham's sardonic wit and lyrical warmth expertly combine in this accomplished and unforgettable novel.
