I wanted to make a quick mention of something I find simply fascinating. In my previous post, I referred to “W. Somerset Maugham” as the editor of the revised translation of “The Brothers Karamazov” by Fyodor Dostoevsky. What took me aback was that W. Somerset Maugham is also the author of the fable described in the post preceding that entitled, “The Appointment In Samarra by W. Somerset Maugham.”
The mention of the name, “W. Somerset Maugham” was in no way intended. It’s purely coincidental. Remarkable, seeing that not more than one year ago, I hadn’t even heard of W. Somerset Maugham, The Brothers Karamazov or The Appointment In Samarra.
