Christmas Holiday

ByW. Somerset (William Somerset) Maugham

For Christmas, Charley Mason's father granted him a trip to Paris, all expenses paid. It should have been a lark, but on his first night Charley meets a woman whose story will forever change his life. For Lydia has seen tragedy. The Russian Revolution displaced her family, left her homeless, fatherless. And for reasons that elude Charley, Lydia pines for a man half a world away—a dope dealer and murderer whose sins Lydia seeks to absolve through her own self-destruction. Haunting, erotic, deeply effecting, Christmas Holiday explores two souls capsized by compassion—and the confusion that engulfed a generation in the days between the Great Wars.
