This new selection of essays by Oscar Wilde show-cases the varied aspects of his genius. For Pearson, the biographer, the essays and dialogues illustrate the many faces of Wilde's extraordinary character: wit, romancer, talker, lecturer, humanist and scholar. The ideas expressed remain remarkably relevant to modern readers, whilst his popularity remains undiminished.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"First, it is an elegant linen-bound production that gives it a handsome feel in the hand, but then fits neatly into a pocket like something one should never travel without on the train. Moreover, it is purple--one of Wilde's statement colors--which as a cover for Wilde's sparkling prose renders it heliotrope with diamonds...it is a book that should always be with us when there are no flowers to look at and we want something to stir the intelligence." --John Cooper, Oscar Wilde in America (blog)

"The release of this lovely volume from Notting Hill Editions is a timely reminder that Oscar Wilde was more than just a wit, spouting aphorisms and ending up the subject of scandal and imprisonment." --Shiny New Books
