Why we love this
The Magician by W. Somerset Maugham. London: Heinemann, 1968. Second edition, second printing. Maugham left London in 1907 to live on the Left Bank in Paris, where he met the celebrated Satanist Aleister Crowley, upon whom the character of the 'magician,' Oliver Haddo, is based. A fascinating picture of bohemian Paris at the turn of the century. This collected edition contains an introduction written by Mr. Maugham.
