Rain is the most famous but I particularly liked the Fall of Edward Barnard. He tells the story from the point of view of Bateman Hunter, a rich and no doubt virtuous young man from Chicago dwellers. There’s obvious satire at the expense of this young man who can’t see any value in anything beyond wealth. And Maugham’s depiction of life on Tahiti is irresistibly seductive.
Have just read Red which is equally unforgettable.
Maugham may not be the most fashionable but I do highly recommend these stories. They make the works of contemporary writers seem rather shallow.
Anyone who is interested in any sort of writing should read WSM short stories, and then compare the rest. As well as the writing and the characters, I love his evocation of colonial times in the far east. Great escapism from our 21st century.
