    I enjoyed it! Maughm's mastery of making the reader feel the discomfort of his characters was extremely.

    Yep, I downloaded it onto my Droid, Now I'm reading <u>Of Hunan Bondage</u>, which I'm pretty sure was summer reading in tenth grade, but is totally unfamiliar.

    Just to follow up, here is the Project Gutenberg link to the book:

    http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/26854

    and here's an HTML link to the short story itself: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/26854/26854-h/26854-h.htm#VII

    Anything copyrighted before January 1st, 1923 is in the public domain in the United States, and this was published in 1921, so this is a legal download if you're nervous about things like that. (sorry for the double post. HTML tags apparently don't work here, and you can't edit these posts)

    Now, this is a hard one to find, because it's basically a short story. You can find it in a couple of different books of Maugham's short stories, and you can find it for free on the internet. Thought you'd all like to know!
