Mrs Craddock




Stunningly rejacketed as part of a major reinvention of this neglected 20th century master

Don McCullin first discovered India with Eric Newby in 1966 and he has been back there again and again in the thirty years since. To him, the subcontinent that is now home to almost a billion people is also the most visually exciting place in the world. Martin Amis has described McCullin as 'a ghostly film director floating around in real life', and it is 'real life' in all its diversity that shines out from the extraordinary photographs and their telling commentary in this book.

About the Author

W. Somerset Maugham

William Somerset Maugham was born in 1874 and lived in Paris until he was ten. He was educated at King’s School, Canterbury, and at Heidelberg University. He spent some time at St. Thomas’ Hospital with the idea of practising medicine, but the success of his first novel, Liza of Lambeth, published in 1897, won him over to literature. Of Human Bondage, the first of his masterpieces, came out in 1915, and with the publication in 1919 of The Moon and Sixpence his reputation as a novelist was established. At the same time his fame as a successful playwright and writer was being consolidated with acclaimed productions of various plays and the publication of several short story collections. His other works include travel books, essays, criticism and the autobiographical The Summing Up and A Writer’s Notebook. In 1927 Somerset Maugham settled in the South of France and lived there until his death in 1965
