The journey to find the authentic self, the self you were created to be is not always easy. It is as W. Somerset Maugham wrote about like the razor’s edge. This novel, The Razor’s Edge tells the story of an American, Larry Darrell, who, traumatized by his experiences as a fighter pilot in World War I, decides to search for some transcendent meaning in his life. This is the story of a man who refuses to conform to the ways of the world, rejects conventional life, and searches for his authentic self. This is the story of one man’s quest for inner peace and enlightenment. It is the tale of one person’s spiritual journey.
