Cakes and Ale, or, The Skeleton in the Cupboard (1930) is a novel by the British author W. Somerset Maugham
Cakes and Ale, or, The Skeleton in the Cupboard (1930) is a novel by the British author W. Somerset Maugham. Maugham exposes the misguided social snobbery levelled at the character Rosie Driffield, whose frankness, honesty, and sexual freedom make her a target of conservative propriety. Her character is treated favourably by the book's narrator, Ashenden, who understands that she was a muse to the many artists who surrounded her, and who himself enjoyed her sexual favours.

Only 19 left in stock (more on the way). Not much I can say about Somerset Maugham or "Cakes and Ale" that hasn't already been said by much more articulent people than I. Just let me say that this is, perhaps, the best Maugham work I've read, in large part because I read it AFTER absorbing Selina Hastings' superb biography of Maugham. Once you know the backstory, Maugham's novel takes on added life.

Cakes and Ale, or, The Skeleton in the Cupboard is a novel by the British author W. Somerset Maugham But the book I like best is Cakes and Ale. Maugham drew his title from the remark of Sir Toby Belch to Malvolio in William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night: "Dost thou think, because thou art virtuous, there shall be no more cakes and ale?" Late in life, Somerset Maugham claimed that this was the favourite among his novels and it is easy to see why, with its wit and provocative themes handled with consummate skill. But the book I like best is Cakes and Ale. because in its pages lives for me again the woman with the lovely smile who was the model for Rosie Driffield.
