MEDIA REVIEWS
"[A] remarkable work of imagination...A wonderfully entertaining parable of the aesthetic ideal" * Guardian *
"A heady late-Victorian tale of double-living" -- Sarah Waters
"There's an incurable disease afflicting females - ageing. Men, on the other hand, never pass their amuse-by dates. Sean Connery is still cutting the sex god mustard and, if time flies, then HE has frequent air miles. Yet, you never hear a man described as mutton dressed as ram, now do you?

"In The Picture of Dorian Gray, Oscar Wilde set the gold standard for chroniclers of decadence" * Guardian *
"Very decadent and Victorian" * Savidge Reads *

“Fantastic!”

I studied this book for my Higher Personal Study and it was great. The character of Dorian Gray is brilliant to study particularly his progression. It is also a wonderful page-turner and Oscar Wilde's writing... More
