The Trembling of a Leaf

by W. Somerset Maugham

Another wonderful classic by Maughan. Each tale transports the reader to another world and reminds us that while much may change human frailties and motivations endure the passage of time. The short story from which the book derives its title being the best example of this. Maughan's descriptors are terrific and I'll bet you'll learn at least one new word that is no longer part of the modern vernacular.

Author of the Day

Alan Joshua
As a clinical psychologist and parapsychologist, Alan Joshua is fascinated with the human mind and everything that makes it tick. He combined his extensive knowledge with his passion for sci-fi in his action-packed debut fiction novel, The SHIVA Syndrome, which has received rave reviews and has already been nominated for several awards. As our author of the day, we chat with Joshua about the inspiration behind his book, the immense amount of research that went into it and whether or not the human mind is still evolving.
