Best known for his novels and plays, Somerset Maugham also produced delightfully engaging and absorbing non-fiction, of which "The Gentleman in the Parlour" is a prime example. First published in 1935 it describes a journey the author took from Rangoon to Haipong. Whether by river to Mandalay, on horse through the mountains and forests of the Shan States to Bangkok, or onwards by sea, Maugham's muse is in the spirit of Hazlitt, who wrote: "It is great to shake off the trammels of the world and public opinion...and to be known by no other title than "The Gentleman in the Parlour."
