What the papers say !
"The case of Oscar Wilde and the Dreyfus case are both familiar stories. Millions of words have been written about both and one could hardly believe that anything new could be said about either. But Mark Hichens's new book achieves the apparently impossible. His narrative is fresh...and breaks new groud in describing Wilde's connection with the Dreyfus case...[he]writes with a clarity, pace wisdom and wry humour."
John Grigg, 'The Spectator' (11 Sep '99)
