To tie-in with the 1997 film release, here is the true story of Oscar Wilde, the man who amused and shocked Edwardian London by becoming an icon of profound artistry, the vilest depravity, and the highest ideals of personal, social, and sexual freedom. With extraordinary depth, humor, and sensitivity, the book follows Wilde's career and personal life. Through it all, Wilde emerges as a man of charm and substance, a true philosopherperhaps simply born before his time.
