This novel is related with childhood of William Somerset Maugham. His father is a lawyer and works for British Embassy in France. His parents died when he was less than 10 years old so he was raised by his uncle. He was always mistreated by elder students because of his short, plump figure and his stuttering. This lead to his isolated and introverted character. At the age of 41, he published his second novel, Human bondage.
