"One of the most interesting and least patronising accounts of cockney life in the late 19th century" (The Times)
"A picture of such squalor and deprivation that it caused an uproar and made Maugham famous" (Sunday Times)
"He evolved a quality possessed only by master story-tellers - that of making the reader greedy for more" (Economist)
"He shrewdly spun the raw material of human suffering into a brutal tale. Maugham pushed the limits of acceptability and gained a following for it" (Washington Times)
Down among the drab slums of Lambeth, eighteen-year-old Liza is the darling of Vere Street. Vibrant and bewitching, she has found an adoring if conventional beau in Tom. When she meets Jim Blakeston, a married man new to the area, she is immediately magnetized by his attentions. But the streets are wise to their passionate affair.See all Product description
