This book is a hilarious collection of comic pen-portraits of Wilde's 300 friends and enemies, linked by brief notes on his classic life story. They include an international cast of theatricals, revolutionaries, barristers, prostitutes, American frontiersmen, politicians, mystics, writers, soldiers, pornographers, diplomats, adventurers and confidence tricksters. Simultaneously a 'dip-in' reference book and a continuous narrative, it is an exuberant compendium of malicious rumor, salacious detail and back stabbing one-liners. It is also the funniest book ever written about the Age of Wilde.
