    The jury is diverse, composed of people from a wide range of disciplines — critics, writers, poets, and actors. Byatt declared herself was "very sad" that the Folio shortlist contained so few novels from outside the US, and identified a lack of "energy" in contemporary British fiction.

    Does a quorum of critics? That revulsion at the idea of a split award — which strikes us as no real prize, as a failure on the part of the judges — is suggestive. Last year, the award was opened up to international writers to mark the London Olympics. This year's winner will be announced on November 4, chosen from a shortlist of six books that include Margaret Thatcher by Charles Moore, and Return of a King, by William Dalrymple. Thus the overall financial earnings might actually be higher than the award itself.

That's a story as old as the hills, and eventually Maugham himself would fall from favour, too although unlike Walpole, whom I dare say nobody reads any more, the author of The Razor's Edge and Of Human Bondage continues to sell and sell.
