The Narrow Corner


224 pages


All this happened a good many years ago.This is the disclaiming first chapter of this sea tale par excellence which evolved from a passage in The Moon and Sixpence that Maugham had written twelve years before.On his way home from a remote Pacific island, Dr Saunders meets the treacherous Captain Nichols, who is carrying Fred Blake from Australia, where he has committed murder. Sheltering from a storm at the island of Kanda, the trio are befriended by the good-natured Erik Christessen. But once they encounter the cool and beautiful Louise their story becomes one of love, jealousy, murder and suicide.
