The author of these short stories is W. Somerset Maugham. The three people listed are the writers who adapted the stories into screenplays. See WorldCat for details:

If there's any way this could be tidied up, I'd appreciate it!

Dobby (dobby0390) | 3620 comments Thanks for the WorldCat link; that helped. I was also able to find a passable cover image on an AbeBooks listing, along with enough details to create a useful description: Encore: Stories by W. Somerset Maugham

lethe | 13669 comments But if they're adaptations, shouldn't Somerset Maugham be listed as a secondary author according to Goodreads policy, never mind what WorldCat says?

Dobby (dobby0390) | 3620 comments The book contains both the short stories and the screenplays. (ETA: I had the same question, Lethe!)

Dot | 139 comments Thanks! Sorry, I'd totally forgotten the adaptations were in there too.
