Summary
Modern Library - one of the 100 best novels of all time.

From a tormented orphan with a clubfoot, Philip Carey grows into an impressionable young man with a voracious appetite for adventure and knowledge. His cravings take him to Paris at age eighteen to try his hand at art, then back to London to study medicine.

But even so, nothing can sate his nagging hunger for experience. Then he falls obsessively in love, embarking on a disastrous relationship that will change his life forever.…

Although not an autobiography as he once claimed, Of Human Bondage is marked by countless similarities to Maugham’s own life. Based on what he knew, fact and fiction are inexorably mingled—heightened by emotions that are all his own. (Adapted from the publisher.)
