Pop History: Goren remembers Somerset Maugham (Sports Illustrated, January 17, 1966)

Goren reminisces about his relationship with the writer W. Somerset Maugham (whose works included Of Human Bondage and Ashenden: or the British Agent), who had passed away the previous month at the great age of 91.  Maugham wrote the introduction to Goren's Standard Book of Bidding in 1944, and they developed a friendship and correspondence. There's a bit of wit recounted, and some amusing anecdotes worthy of a literary giant.
