RSVP : "It was a rule at the Mauresque that everyone
bathe naked in the swimming pool." In 1962 nephew
Robin blackmailed his Unk into giving him $50k w promise
that he'd never write about him--. So here he is writing
about him after his death. A pastiche of fact-fancy and
quotes fr Willie's own work passed off as "conversation."
Bizarre, black.

A great memoir of one of the greatest writer in the history of literature.
robin maugham racconta suo zio willie, william somerset maugham: scrittore di successo, omosessuale- ma con un matrimonio alle spalle, insicuro, balbuziente, a tratti aggressivo e capriccioso. la prima parte è decisamente più interessante della seconda, che è semplicemente una raccolta di aneddoti a volte brillanti e a volte molto tristi. mi aspettavo, chissà perché, qualcosa di meglio.
