Review

ON THE COMPLETE LETTERS OF OSCAR WILDE:

‘The long serpentine line of Oscar Wilde's career is traced here like some fiery scarlet thread. This is a marvellous volume, fully worthy of Wilde's own genius.' The Times

'A whole world is here. *****' Mail on Sunday

'The year's unputdownable joy.' Spectator

'The next best thing to Wilde's own presence. Opening this book, one walks into the company of a spirit so large and generous, of such dash and charm, that one is grateful such largesse has been captured at the very moment it is being distributed – to those recipients who were once as eager, as amused, as captivated as the readers of these letters will be today.' Irish Times

'Nowhere does he seem more sympathetic, or more engaging. The letters bring you as close as you can get to the man himself – warts and all, but magic and all as well. You get a wonderful sense, such as even the best biography couldn't quite give, of Wilde in action from day to day – living in the thick of society, hustling his career forward. Perpetually gripping.' Sunday Telegraph

'Here we have the whole triumph-to-tragedy in the writer's own wonderful words.' Literary Review
