This is a collection of stories with varied settings: restaurants in Paris and London, a bungalow in North Borneo, two ships in the North Pacific, an old farm in Somerset, a hospital on an island near Australia, a village in the south of Italy, and a prison yard in Nicaragua.
Five of the nine stories are about cosmopolitan travellers and three about those who are content to stay at home. Two are about young love, three are about old age, four are about death, and six are about ships and sailing.
How much did Mrs Ramsay's pearl necklace really cost, and who paid for it? Was the Dutchman pursued by a ghost or a real person? Why has Mr Donaldson never touched a card nor a drop of alcohol for fifty-seven years? Did Emily Green marry the right man or not? And what will be the rebel's last act before being shot?
These are the questions posed in Maugham's stories.
