W Somerset Maugham was born in Paris in 1874.  He trained as a doctor in London where he started writing his first novels.  He achieved fame in 1907 with the production of LADY FRIEDRICH, and by 1908 he had four plays running simultaneously in London.  In 1926 he bought a house in Cap Ferrat, France, which was to become a meeting place for a number of writers, artists and politicians.  He died in 1965.
