The Picture of Dorian Gray

The Picture of Dorian Gray - Oscar Wilde, Michael Gillespie Review courtesy of Reading Project 2015.

Welp, this is a classic.

Never has the word tremulous fluttered so gaily and so often upon the page.

Look, it's kind of camp and exquisite and over-wrought and gothic as hell.

It may, in fact, be just about perfect. An ornate jewel of book.

Also epigrams.

I don't have a gif but here is a picture of David Bowie at his most astonishingly beautiful.



It feels fitting somehow.

Als a cigarette ... "is the perfect type of a perfect pleasure. It is exquisite, and it leaves one unsatisfied. What more can one want?”

So my mind cannot encompass the sheer unadulterated hedonism of David Bowie holding a cigarette.

I think Oscar would be proud.
