As one of the most abidingly popular literary figures of the twentieth century, W. Somerset Maugham's sphere of influence far exceeded the realm of the stage, for which most of his early works were written. The Land of Promise is D. Torbett's novelization of Maugham's play of the same name, which served as the basis for several versions that were produced for both stage and screen.
