The Razor's Edge

The Razor's Edge is by W. Somerset Maugham. The classic tale of a man's quest for spiritual enlightenment and its effect on those around him. This is also a tale of elitism and snobbery in America and Europe in the 1920s. Maugham wanders in and out of the story as the narrator. This book has been referred to as the British elitist version of The Great Gatsby. A classic well worth the time it takes to read.

Ratings: 11th grade - 9 out of 10 - P (profanity) - AC (mature thematic content) - V (violence).
