"Far Eastern Tales" is a collection of short stories born of Maugham's experiences in Malaya, Singapore and other outposts of the former British Empire.
Whether portraying a ship-borne flight from a lover's curse, murder in the jungle, or a marriage shattered by a past indiscretion, they all reveal Maugham at his best - sometimes caustic, sometimes gently comic, but always the shrewd and human judge of character and soul.
