[bottom corners bumped, tiny piece of cloth torn (or chewed) away at top of spine, light foxing to front endpapers; jacket shows wear at corners, half-inch deep chip at top of spine (taking away part of "The" in title), a bit of soiling to front panel]. The author, "himself a noted poet and novelist, has made an intensive study of the life and times of Oscar Wilde, and in this colorful and revealing novel, has not only created an intensely dramatic story, but has succeeded in shedding a new light on Wilde's extraordinary personality, bringing to life the man himself as he must have appeared to his intimates -- a thing which no purely factual biography could attempt to do!" (Yes, because you know, biography is just all, like, factual and stuff.) Dust jacket design by somebody who'd apparently never seen a picture of Oscar Wilde, who in this rendering looks quite a bit like Beethoven.
