W. Somerset Maugham’s “Up At the Villa.”

W. Somerset Maugham’s, “Up at The Villa” is a wonderful, entertaining, thought provoking novel. Mary Panton, a wealthy, beautiful English widow, lives in her friend’s villa overlooking Florence, Italy. In a strange twist of fate, the very thing she jokes about a few hours earlier suddenly becomes a nightmarish reality. The novel is amazingly suspenseful, lucid, and beautifully written. I highly enjoyed this novel.
