Simon Callow


One of literature’s most witty personalities, Oscar Wilde captivated London society. In this perceptive appraisal of Wilde and those around him – including Aubrey Beardsley, Sir Max Beerbohm and Wilde’s lover, Lord Alfred Douglas (‘Bosie’) – Simon Callow captures the spirit of one of Britain’s most feted, but ultimately tragic literary figures.
