Maugham worked for the British Secret Service during WW I. These stories are based on his experiences as an agent and as it says on the back of my Vintage Classics copy, the stories reflect "the ruthlessness and brutality of espionage, its intrigue and treachery, as well as its absurdity." And there is a fair amount of the aforementioned absurdity. That, and Maugham's excellent writing, makes this a very entertaining read.

The Razor's Edge is a 1944 novel by W. Somerset Maugham and is considered to be the most accessible of his books. It tells the story of Larry Darrell, an American pilot traumatized by his experiences in World War I along some of the people who had an impact on Larry’s life, including his fiancee Isabel and her uncle Elliot, a snobbish expat American who cannot imagine any other way of life but that of following European high society.

Larry sets off in search of a transcendent meaning to life and although he invites Isabel to join him, she, needing to choose between her love of Larry or her need for a life of wealth and privilege, breaks off their engagement. One unique feature of the story is that it is narrated by a character who happens to be the author, W. Somerset Maugham. Larry Darrell spends the book travelling and searching for life’s meaning and intermittently passing his observations on to Maugham who then interprets these concepts of war, death, life, marriage, and profession onto the pages.

I found The Razor’s Edge an interesting read. It’s philosophical theme of finding one’s true purpose in order to live a meaningful life certainly made this reader reflective. Of course it is obvious that one has to find out for himself what the meaning of life is as it is different for everyone. I believe that by exposing his characters inner desires, whether it be stability, spirituality or simply working and caring for others that Maugham was trying to point out that the way to peace and happiness is one’s ability to accept and respect other people’s choices.

Somerset Maugham was a great writer and these stories are an enjoyable trip back to a vanished world. The people he wrote about were thinly veiled real people that he had met and it is quite alarming to see what little effort he goes to hide that. Would be very risky to spend any time with him, people tended not to come out well in his descriptions.

I've always been a fan of Maugham's short stories, but this may not be his best selection.
Anyway, his stories still shine a light on colonial life, and, especially, the colonials, in the early 20th century. In several of the stories in this volume, that light shows pretentious uptight folk, desperately trying to show a false face to the world. Sad.
