If you think you know what there is to know about Oscar Wilde from his plays, most notably "The Importance of Being Earnest," you may be in for a shock with this book. Dank and dark, this book tells the story of a socialite who sells his soul for immortality (and immorality) ... only to discover a portrait of him gets more decrepit and old with the passage of time. The book was used against Wilde at his indecency trial in 1895, which speaks to its power. Highly recommended, though definitely not for younger readers.
