Yessir, we’re talking about The Moon and Sixpence by W. Somerset Maugham, that classic touchstone that everybody loves and has definitely heard of. Actually this is an interesting book, and Brandon gives an interesting context, discussing the idea of the artist as cultural high-priest, negative capability, and all kinds of fun stuff. Give it a listen. Would you be reading this if you were not going to?
