Product description


'Stratmann's book is keenly researched, brilliantly challenging and fascinating.' -John Carey, The Sunday Times -- Peter Carey Sunday Times 'A fascinating, challenging defense of the man who caused Oscar Wilde's downfall.'-Sunday Times Sunday Times 'As one reads, with great enjoyment, this impeccably researched study, one is reminded once again of The Picture of Dorian Gray and the words of the painter, Basil Hallward. 'Every portrait that is painted with feeling', he says, 'is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter. The sitter is merely the accident, the occasion. It is not he who is revealed by the painter; it is rather the painter who, on the coloured canvas, reveals himself."-Jonathan Barnes, TLS -- Jonathan Barnes TLS 'Stratmann's rehabilitation in the public consciousness of the person credited with bringing down Oscar Wilde and probably hastening his death is not undertaken lightly, and it is truly fascinating. A portrait of a man 'not easily liked' but admirable in his search his for lost brother does create sympathy and Stratmann's style is both scholarly and accessible.'-Lesley McDowell, The Herald -- Lesley McDowell The Herald "Deft and diligently researched."-D J Taylor, Wall Street Journal (Europe) -- DJ Taylor Wall Street Journal (Europe) "This portrait presents compelling new evidence of Queensbury's humanity."-Kirkus Kirkus Reviews "Enthralling ... Far from evil, Queensbury as Stratmann presents him is definitely sympathetic, perhaps even admirable."-Booklist, starred review Booklist
