Willie era senza dubbio il più celebre autore vivente. Con ogni probabilità era anche il più triste. Nonostante l'attacco, il libro che Robin Maugham nipote di Somerset e romanziere in proprio - ha dedicato allo zio è uno dei ritratti di scrittori più convincenti, utili e anche spassosi che siano mai stati pubblicati. E lo è per una ragione molto semplice: nella forma della conversazione - qui restituita con impressionante fluidità - Maugham dava il meglio di sé, alternando momenti di candore (Sono bisessuale, ma per un fatto di reputazione non è che lo vado a strombazzare in giro) a pillole di saggezza (Ho sempre sognato di scrivere una grande commedia, cioè un dramma che avesse un inizio, una parte centrale e una fine), giudizi taglienti (Noel Coward aveva poco talento, ma l'ha sfruttato fino all'osso) a grandi storie, cui Maugham ricorre ogni volta che sul viso del nipote vede affacciarsi un'ombra di scetticismo. Può trattarsi di un pettegolezzo mondano, di un aneddoto su Aleister Crowley o di un episodio inedito, come l'ambasceria affidata a Maugham da Kerenskij dopo la rivoluzione di febbraio, e destinata a Lloyd George: non importa, così come non importa che i fatti siano o no realmente accaduti - ciò che conta è che ogni volta il lettore ha la sensazione di scoprire un romanzo in miniatura dalla firma inconfondibile
