Format: Paperback
As an Oscar Wilde fanatic (I have read literally everything ever written by/about him) I was drawn to this book because of the new perspective about him that was offered: that of his child. Not only is it interesting to read about his Vyvyan's memories about him, but the biography is written in such a vivid way that one can actually feel the pain Oscar's son goes through when his father is sentenced to prison and when he dies. This is a must read for an Oscar Wilde fan interested in gaining a new perspective on the legendary writer...it is the closest one will ever be to understanding what it was like being in his family.

An excellent complement to Wilde's own life. Even people who think
they know it all can see the depth of feeling and bewilderment the
younger son experienced, and the quality of Wilde's wife is revealed,
something which is not always appreciated.
Written in a clear style which nevertheless allows the reader
to sense the emotional struggle involved to come through and have a life of his own.

The book is very interesting. It opened another view on Oscar Wild's life. No one of his biographers never wrote about his family after his arrest. But what about quality this book is so-so.
