    The foreword explaining the background to the tale contains several veiled barbs as to the state of English 'polite' society Such as'I am painfully aware that the persons of this drama were not actuated by the moral sentiments which they might have acuired by education at a really good English public school'And'If they sinned they sinned elegantly and much may be forgiven to people whose pedigree is above suspicion'Maugham was apparently unhappy with this book in later years and perhaps it is because of this rather catty foreword rather than the uality of the tale or its writing Society certainly took him to its bosom a dozen years later when he was a very successful writer of plays'Making of a saint' gives a nice flavour of fifteenth century Italy and with much of Maugham's work it is easy to picture the scenes Maybe this is because of his ability as a playwright in bringing words to dramatic life It is a tale of intrigue and assassination typical of the era and although not hugely memorable it is an enjoyable read by a young writer at the beginning of his great career
