This is a very exhaustive yet eye-opening and incredibly interesting view of Wilde's life. The author is obviously in "love" with Wilde and admires his ability to provoke and charm the world. Wilde is one of those few icons in literature, whose personality and creativity is able to transcend death. I admire him greatly and this book only makes me love him more. I like to fantasize about how Oscar would be using social media to his advantage.
