W. Somerset Maugham (1874–1965) was an English playwright, novelist and short story writer. He was among the most popular writers of his era and, reputedly, the highest paid author during the 1930s. He is the author of "Of Human Bondage."

Charles Dudley Warner (1829–1900) was an American essayist, novelist, and friend of Mark Twain, with whom he co-authored the novel The Gilded Age: A Tale of Today. He is known for making the famous remark "Everybody complains about the weather, but nobody does anything about it". This was quoted by Mark Twain in a lecture, and is still commonly misattributed to Twain.
