Read The Moon and Sixpence by W. Somerset Maugham. Based on the life of Paul Gauguin, Maugham's novel is an ode to the powerful forces behind creative genius. Through Maugham's sympathetic eye the tortured and cruel soul of the artist, Charles Strickland, becomes a symbol of the blessing and the curse of transcendent artistic genius and the cost in human lives it sometimes demands.
