Inhaltsangabe

When war broke out in 1914, Somerset Maugham was dispatched by the British Secret Service to Switzerland under the guise of completing a play. Multilingual, knowledgeable about many European countries, and a celebrated writer, Maugham had the perfect cover, and the assignment appealed to his love of romance, and of the ridiculous.

The stories collected in Ashenden are rooted in Maugham's own experiences as an agent, reflecting the ruthlessness and brutality of espionage, its intrigue and treachery, as well as its absurdity.

Entertaining

A well conceived collection of stories of a WWI spy. Not only does the reader travers the globe at a time of historical conflict, but he is also given access to the insightful and humorous observations of the protagonist. Excellent narration.
