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

It took her six years to complete her debut work, but it was worth it. As our author of the day, Velk chats about her Up, Back and Away, why she wrote it and reveals exactly how much research went into it.
