Product description

Review

"Fresh and entertaining...Self's tale offers compassion and hope, ultimately giving Dorian a visceral and emotional conclusion....The tamed excess of Self's irreverent and unrelenting voice make Dorian an exceptional read and a thought-provoking examination of the most basic of human vices."

From the Back Cover

'Chilling, hysterical, tasteless and haunting. A Gothic thriller complementing and enriching its original' Independent on Sunday

'Shot through with dark humour and pathos' Big Issue

In the summer of 1981, aristocratic, drug-addicted Henry Wooten and Warhol-acolyte Baz Hallward meet Dorian Gray. Dorian is a golden adonis - perfect, pure and (so far) deliciously uncorrupted. The subject of Baz's video installation, Cathode Narcissus, and the object of Henry's attentions, Dorian is launched on a hedonistic binge that spans the '80s and '90s. But as Baz and Henry succumb to the disease du jour, how is it that Dorian, despite all his sexual and narcotic debauchery, remains so unsullied - so vibrantly alive?

'Self's reincarnation of Dorian has taken the fag ends of both an English century and an English myth and given them new, troubling and hugely entertaining life' Neil Bartlett, Guardian

'A book that filled its first reviewers with "the odour of moral and spiritual putrefaction" just got smellier, darker and funnier' Observer

'Savage and hilarious [with a] delicious sense of dread. Wilde would have been flattered by Self's brilliant "imitation" of his tainted love story' Time Out
