'Killeen's interpretations should be taken seriously and should be allowed to channel readers in new directions, especially in seeing the religious dimensions of the tales. The readings are cogent and well argued, never seeming forced, never distorting a tale to make it fit a preconceived notion... We cannot ask Wilde what he intended, but the stories are enriched for me after having read Killeen's book. I recommend it highly, especially to those who approach literature from a Christian worldview.' Christianity and Literature
