毛姆属于现实主义作家,但是小说当中有部分自然主义特征。例如重视环境描写,以及反映中下层人民。毛姆被称为英国的莫泊桑。他一生著作甚多,除诗歌以外的各个文学领域,都有所涉及,有所建树。他共写了长篇小说二十部,短篇小说一百多篇,剧本三十个,此外尚著有游记、回忆录、文艺评论多种。他的作品,特别是他的长、短篇小说,文笔质朴,脉络清晰,人物性格鲜明,情节跌宕有致,在各个阶层中都拥有相当数量的读者群。毛姆的作品被译成各国文字,不少小说还被搬上银幕。毛姆是二十世纪上半叶最受人欢迎的小说家之一。

这是一个医生和病人的故事,也是一个病人和自己的梦的故事,故事悬疑却不至压抑,情节跌宕又不失严谨。故事很短,但读者能从这里读出人性和大世界。

威廉·萨默塞特·毛姆,英国小说家、戏剧家。生于律师家庭。父母早死,由伯父接回英国抚养。原来学医,后转而致力写作。他的作品常以冷静、客观乃至挑剔的态度审视人生,基调超然,带讽刺和怜悯意味,在国内外拥有大量读者。著名的有戏剧《圈子》,长篇小说《人生的枷锁》、《月亮和六便士》,短篇小说集《叶的震颤》、《卡苏里那树》、《阿金》等。

William Somerset Maugham CH (25 January 1874 – 16 December 1965) was a British playwright, novelist and short story writer. He was among the most popular writers of his era and reputedly the highest paid author during the 1930s.

奥德林大夫看了看桌上的钟,已经五点四十了。他很惊讶病人竟然迟到了,因为芒德内哥勋爵一向守时,并因此感到自豪。勋爵讲话简洁、庄重,普普通通的话经他一说,听起来就似箴言警句一般;他常说,守时是对智者的尊重,是对愚者的斥责。芒德内哥勋爵与奥德林大夫约好五点三十分见。

Dr. Audlin looked at the clock on his desk. It was twenty minutes to six. He was surprised that his patient was late, for Lord Mountdrago prided himself on his punctuality; he had a sententious way of expressing himself which gave the air of an epigram to a commonplace remark, and he was in the habit of saying that punctuality is a compliment you pay to the intelligent and a rebuke you administer to the stupid. Lord Mountdrago's appointment was for five-thirty.
