Virginia Woolf said about this book, "She liked the clarity of his style, and also the honesty with which he tried to get at the truth. She liked the analysis of his own methods of writing." (Harold Nicolson's Diaries and Letters)
Let us see what Stephen Vincent Benet said, "an autobiography of extreme intellectual honesty, by a man who wished to make a certain thing out of his life and has worked it out in a pattern. It is honest, in the field of its lens. And for consistent clarity and consistent ease, it is hard to match in contemporary writing." (Anthony Curtis, editor. W Somerset Maugham The Critical Heritage)
