WEBSTER BOOTH RECORDS SOUGHT

I am still looking for the following recordings featuring Webster Booth. If you have any of these recordings, I would be very grateful if you could send me an MP3 of the recording. I have many other recordings listed in the catalogues and would be happy to send you an MP3 in exchange.

 Some recordings have been listed as only one side. This means that I have already managed to obtain the other side of the recording on tape, CD or MP3.

I am not willing to send or receive 78rpm records in the post because of :

a) high postal costs;

b) for fear of the record getting broken in the post;

c) for fear that the record disappears in the postal system!

If you can help, please leave a comment or fill in the contact form

Good Reads Book Reviews

The Moon And SixpenceThe Moon And Sixpence by W. Somerset Maugham
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Apparently Strickland was based on the artist Paul Gauguin, but if this was the case, there is a very loose connection between the two for this in not a novel a clef. The book held my interest while the narrator had personal contact with Strickland and his wife. Almost from the beginning of the novel, before Charles Strickland had appeared, I thought him a thoroughly reprehensible character.

Admittedly his wife was not an imaginative woman and used her established position in society to cultivate the society of writers and artists although she appeared to be devoid of any artistic talent herself. She obviously regarded her "dull" husband as nothing more than a meal-ticket and she had never encouraged his artistic inclinations. It is only after he leaves her to her own devices that she manages to pull herself together, fend for herself and look after her children without being dependent on a man any longer.

The portrait of a completely self-centred, inarticulate Strickland, who does not care about the opinion of others was well-drawn but after the narrator is no longer in personal contact with Strickland and the rest of the story of Strickland's life is related to him by a third person the story is less satisfactory. I have to admit that I did not finish the last fifty pages of the book. Although I like Maugham's work, this was not my favourite Maugham novel.
